I usually don't do much on Memorial Day, but today I am making it a point to remember my dad. He was a veteran and he passed 10 years ago.
Today I am remembering that he loved his country, and didn't hesitate to tell you so. For his work in the oil industry after the war, he had been sent to Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Bahrain, and had been in other parts of the world while in the Navy. He was keenly aware of his freedoms as being an American and he wanted his family to be aware that they lived in the best place in the entire world! If anyone could 'preach' about his country, he could. So today, I am thankful for my dad, LeRoy Clark, his service, and my country.
