I know the time my Dad spent in Korea was hard. Although he didn’t talk about it much, I know his hearing was severely impaired from nearby mortar explosions. I’m guessing he probably didn’t feel safe or secure — and most likely missed home.
Obviously, from the photo below, he still found things that made him smile. His brother… music… and new friends. (Uncle Max is far left — Dad is squatting and is 3rd from left.)
For the record, Ben looks exactly like my Dad… Coco thought that’s who it was in the photo.
PS. Happy Valentine’s Day!
