This is my Dad – Donald J. Gallipeau. He served as a young man (18) in WW2 in the 101st Airborne – Parachut Field Artillary 463rd as a jumping cannoneer. He will be 87 in the end of June. He came home from being in some horrific historical battles married a girl he knew in school, had three kids, worked three jobs and lived the American dream. My parents will celebrate their 66th wedding anniversary, God willing, in August.
He is my hero. Thanks Dad. Thank you to all that served and are serving.
It’s not Veterens day, it’s Memorial Day – time to reflect on those in our lives that we loved, lost and now miss. My Dad is still here on this earth, but his mind is gone so I want to dedicate my blog to him today remembering the loving, hard working, battle scared hero that never talked about his nightmares and demons around us kids.
I love you and I miss you.
