ANZAC Day – Face of the day

Today’s face of the day is my Dad who is a proud Australian. In the photo he is wearing a greenstone tiki given to him by my Mum when he left New Zealand to serve his country in Vietnam.

    They were so young once. That photo of your Dad could be any soldier at any time. It brought a tear to my eye.

    My father died just under two years ago. Anzac Day is one day I really miss the old bastard. Here is a pic of him and his section in Italy in 1944 (the young guy in the middle of the pic)

    Beautiful, lest we forget.

    Blogs such as yours a way to carry forward your dads legacy through such efforts as endeavouring to retain freedom of speech & freedom of choice which is why I return here.

    My focus for ANZAC 2016 is past being paid forward as I have a niece doing her armed forces duty at Burnham today….feeling proud.
