Happy Armed Forces Day!

Today is Armed Forces Day in the United States, established on the third Saturday in May "for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country."

I'd like to especially thank my dad, Fred Pape, for his service in the Air Force (and in the Korean War) from March 1951 through April 1955.  This is a photo of him from that period, taken when he was on leave and visiting his parents and siblings at 2093 West Lunt in Chicago, Illinois.

  1. Thanks for the post about Armed Forces Day. And thank you to all of our military for their service.

  2. Please tell your Dad "Thank you" for his service! I know those in the military sacrifice a lot! Great post!
