My Dad sent me this picture while I was deployed after September 11th, 2001. It was taken in New York in June of 2001. They were on vacation with my brother's family after his retirement from the USAF. On the back of the picture my Dad wrote, "This is what it's all about."
My Dad passed away in 2009. This picture and his words still bring tears to my eyes even as I type this out.
Love and miss you everyday, Dad.
