That's my dad. Young, handsome, and no doubt scared out of his mind as he was preparing to go to VietNam. Which he did by choice. I am amazed by the men and women who've chosen this path. And I honor them today, especially - but always.
On a lighter but related note, this is Edith Shain, the 90-year-old woman who claims to be the nurse in the iconic photo of a WWII soldier swooping in to plant a big kiss on her lips in the center of Times Square, NYC.

As I look at this endearing photo (taken this week) I can't help but think one thing: Please let my legs look this good at least once in my life. Hopefully before I'm 90.
