Serendipity Sundays ~ My favorite Veteran

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

This is the first Memorial Day weekend since my Geno left this earth last September. He is greatly remembered and not a day goes by that someone doesn't say his name, tell a story or laugh about a name he named someone (he gave you a name if he liked you). Geno brighten everyones day with his humor and ability to create a loyal following of friends and clients. He was like a magnet that attracted everyone in the room.

He is my favorite Veteran......RIP my Geno!

Morning Dorie.

My favorite one was of course, my dad.  He died in 1977, I still miss him to this day

A couple of days ago I was viewing old photos in an album here at my home.  I was taken by the number of those pictured who were wearing military uniforms.  They represented WWII, the Korean War, Vietnam, and other military eras.  My son is U.S. Navy Retired.  He spent 20 years, mostly aboard the Aircraft Carriers, Kitty Hawk and the Abraham Lincoln.  He was on the Kitty Hawk when it entered the Persian Gulf at the time the U.S. Cole was hit.  His ship did not make port for 5 months.  He was also on the Kitty Hawk when it was the staging area for the first gulf war.  I remember watching CNN one night, and thinking that I had seen him live aboard the ship.  When I asked him about it soon after, he said, "No, that wasn't me.  However, if you saw the segment where I was running across the hanger bay with a 50 calibre machine gun over my shoulder, that'd be me."  Imagine, sitting on a couch in Sacramento, watching live scenes with your son at war, thousands of miles away!

Dorie I did not realize that Geno was a fellow squid.  I served in the Navy from 1970 to 1974.
