This is my dad, Melvin Linn, in a photo taken somewhere in Germany in 1945. He served with the 94th Infantry, U.S. Army. Today is Veteran's Day and we honor and remember all those who served their country. As most of you know, my dad passed away last spring. He talked often of the war. The experiences of his time in the service stayed with him all his life. He was proud to be a veteran.
Today there will be services around the country in honor of all service men and women. A service will be held here in Henderson in the afternoon, and I will sing the National Anthem and God Bless America and remember my dad. I'll also remember our friend, Danny, who lost his life in Vietnam and all those who gave their lives for our country. We are blessed that they served for us.
