Veterans Day Remembrance of My WWII Hero

Veterans Day Remembrance of My WWII Hero

On each Veterans Day, I wear a long black scarf with bright red poppies. I bought it several years ago at the National World War I Museum in Kansas City, and it reminds me that Veterans Day had once been “Armistice Day.” On that day in 1918, on the “11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month,” World War I ended.

But on that day I also remember a special veteran of World War II whom I lost in 2019. It is now my second Veterans Day without him. That man was my father, my hero.
