Daddy's proudest moment was the year he was the oldest Marine at his Marine Corp League Marine Birthday party. Being able to pass the cake to the youngest Marine present really meant a lot to him.

I'd also like to remember and honor the daddy who passed on his love of God and Country; classical music, history and reading. The daddy who made a small fishing pole for me and taught me to fish and whistle. The daddy who loved to laugh and love puns -- the more groan-worthy, the better.

I miss you, daddy. Semper Fi.

Thank you again, Ruth-
On this Marine Corps Anniversary, for sharing your father's story with us and returning to continue bringing life to it.
Tonight I raise my glass in your father's honor, as well as those who served before, with, and after him.
