Take Me Back Tuesday: My Dad

It is time for Take Me Back Tuesday, brought to us by A Giveaway Addicted Mommy.

This is a picture of my Dad. This past Sunday, June 28, would have been his 72nd birthday. His name was Charles Michael, but he hated Charles so he only went by Michael. He was in the Marines at the time of the Korean War, but was not sent over to Korea. He was very proud of the Marines.

During my parent's honeymoon they drove to Virginia on the way they pick up a hitchhiker. The only reason why they pick him up was because he was a Marine. My Mom was slightly against it, but my Dad said they had to help the guy out. Very Proud.

I miss him.

What a wonderful story and picture! My father served in the Korean War too, but in the Navy. My brother however was/is a Marine. (Served in the early 1990's)
I miss my dad too! Thanks for sharing!

Is it totally tacky to say your dad was a hottie? I am sucker for a man in uniform.

Thanks for participating!!
