Today would have been my father's 91st birthday

Today would have been my father's 91st birthday. He also passed away five years ago this day. 

His is a life certainly worth celebrating. 

There are many of you out there who he considered to be his sons and daughters -and you know who you are. 

Dad touched many lives as I am often reminded. But you meant much to him, too. Never forget that. Thanks for warming his heart -and mine, too! 

Semper Fi! Happy birthday, Dad!

Chinese New Year Greetings!

Chinese New Year has arrived! I wish everyone the best of holidays and happiness to all. May good health, good luck, great success and prosperity be yours throughout the Year of the Goat. 

I am reminded that on a cold, winter's day in 1946 my father and other China Marines witnessed the first postwar Lunar New Year celebrations in China. Go to this link for photos and my narration of that occasion.
