A Tribute to my dad The War Hero

My father completed three tours in Vietnam with the US Army. He was made to be a soldier and wore his uniform proudly. During one of his tours he charged a machine gun nest and took out the Vietcong that were wounding and killing American soldiers. He was wounded in the encounter and received a bronze star and purple heart for his heroic actions. While home on leave in 1973 his life was senselessly taken away by a drunk driver. All seven of his children has served in the Armed Forces and has covered every branch besides the Coast Guard. I served in the Marine Corps and met my goal of becoming a sergeant and following in his footsteps. I have been doing research to complete an accurate shadow box to pass on to my grandkids about their great grandfather and grandfather. Here's my progress. Semper Fi & GOD bless our fallen

Beautifully done and a great way to honor your dad's memory and legacy.

The older I get, the stronger gravity becomes.

Very nice shadow box, and excellent tribute!

Is that his flag?

Shoot straight

People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.
