Today We Laid To Rest A Hero

My father-in-law. Saw combat in Korea defending the Pusan Perimeter. Supported the troops in Vietnam while doing two tours in Thailand loading bombs on planes. He was an Air Force lifer, retired with full pension.

He taught me how to hunt deer. He taught me pretty much everything I knew about firearms. His job in the USAF was weapons. Yet he thought the 2nd Amendment applied to hunting rifles.

So he was also a staunch Democrat. The kind I look at and go "you voted for Obama"?

I don't care, I will always love and miss him.

RIP Pops.

Below the fold is my son's eulogy to him.
