|You are so lucky to still have your dad around, hero or no hero, but a hero makes it all the better. I hope you're spending the day with him. And treasure these precious moments that you still have with him.|

|From what I know of Palau island, your father is a true survivor from the hell. And only you got to sit on his knee! It is time to remember once again.

|A very heartfelt poem amd a tribute to a veteran as well as to a daddy. I, like you am blessed to still have my dad and I love and appreciate him more than words can say.
My dad is 91 and still very sharp. With your dad talking about taking care of your mom until she died and wondering why he is still here, I empathize with him and understand completely his feelings.Losing my wife recently is the hardest thing I've ever been through in my life!My heart and my love go out to your dad as a veteran and as a dad and to you for being a loving daughter and being able to put it in writing so well! God Bless.

|Nicely said Vivian, a great tribute to a true hero. We owe our veterans and those on active duty so much more than the tributes we so generously grant to them on only two days of the year. (Veterans and Memorial day) I have a poem posting tomorrow, (or maybe the next day) speaking to the travesty of giving our military men and women their due on only those 2 days out of the whole year.|

|Vivian, Only men like your Daddy really understand what "Semper Fidelis" truly means and it is appropriate that you have celebrated his life in verse. Your direct, prose like, approach is more fitting than your usual blank verse. This is intensely personal and all the better for it. It is easy to let the power of poetry be diluted by flowery words.|
