Run for the wall 27, 2015 is complete for me. We start every day with a Prayer, the Pledge and a rememberance of why we ride. The last few years we do one remembrance from Vietnam (the one I had this year was of an Air Fofce Major whose remains have been found and returned. His name is on panel 16W line 63) we then do a rememberance of men and women lost in the Global war on terror.
This year as I stated in a previous post I rode in honor of my Dad, the Old Marine. He loved this Run, this Route and this Mission. He once said that the Vietnam Veterans got a raw deal. My friend Eamon said that the Australian Vietnam Vets were treated badly becauseit was not considered a war.
This year I adressed a lot, and I do not know if I will do this run again. If I do my Dad will be with me. I will have his memory forever, and I will keep missing him. We didn't always have good times and the bad times were sometimes horrible, but I think I will try to remember all the good times.
Thank you Dad for the life I do have. I love you and I miss you.
