Happy Birfday!!!

To the SarMajor.....Hory Clap, the Man, and I do mean THE MAN....is Eighty Seven friggin' years old today......

Fought in a couple of wars....notably the South Pacific WWII, USMC, Peleliu, the bloodiest....three, I think, Purple hearts.....and not the Kerry kind, still can't pass a metal detector without it wanting to hump his leg....two Bronze stars and a Silver star for Courage in Combat......

Hell, it's a good thing he doesn't wear a uniform anymore....getting a little old to be carrying all the weight of his medals and ribbons.

Yes, I am Damn Proud to be this Mans' Son. He did right by five children and a wife....that would be my Momma, of over sixty five years.....what that beautiful Woman saw in that Marine simply has to be left to the imagination......

'cept, you can probably tell by the picture.....he aged fairly well.

Happy Birthday Sir. I, and the rest of your progeny Love you....even if it has always been a bit of a struggle getting more out of a phone conversation with you than...."Yep, I'm fine, good to hear you're well....here's your Mother"

Heh....remember that earlier post about the Mars-Venus thing?....when the Sarmajor says, "Nope".........Believe Him......

Dick? Yup...that was his nickname growing up....now he's Steve.
Love you Daddy....yah......"Daddy"....don't be a Dick....unless you think you can be as good a Man as my Dad.
