For anyone wondering, I've been away from the forum for a while due to personal issues.
If anyone would like to see it, I've put a video on my facebook page dedicated to may dad, who passed in August:
Welcome back friend! Bud.
Rob, That's a very nice video about your Dad. As a veteran, I know a few things about that also...
I don't do facebook is there another way to see the video?
Thank you for your service
Same here. Would like to see the video. Rob and his family set the standard of life in America. Scott
You must be back from your excursion across the pond?! I do hope you and yours had a good time on the Run!
Wayne, yes, back. A great trip. I drove John Biggs 04 Model C the entire way, and my kids nearly froze to death. Great trip.
I've uploaded to DropBox. This brings tears to my eyes every time I play it. (disregard the typos, my hands were a little shaky as I put it together). It's been a really tough year:
This is what I put with the video on FaceBook:
Tribute to an old Soldier:
If this doesn't bring a tear, nothing will. The thing I will always remember about my dad, he never let anything keep him down. For years he would have shrapnel from exploded shells work out of his back and neck, and have surgery and stitches.
He contracted a tropical fever while in the Philippines and New Guinea, and every winter he would have a relapse, being bedridden for a week to ten days. He just said, "it could have been worse, some of my friends never came home."
Thank You Rob. That is a very nice tribute to your Father. It reminded me of my Father.
THANK YOU VETS EVERYWHERE FOR YOUR SERVICE
A fitting tribute to your Dad.
He was part of that "Greatest Generation" that did so much.
We owe our freedom to him and the others who did so much for our country from our earliest history and those who are still serving today.

I knew from previous discussions that your dad was a very special man. But, although you have mentioned some of that in the past, I did not know just to what extent he had to carry his service with him through the rest of his life . You have shown your pride in him many times, and rightly so.
Again, all veterans, thank you.
Thanks Rob. I see that as a wonderful tribute to your dear father, but it also becomes a tribute to all who served each of their various Allied countries through that time.
Rob, what a great tribute to your Dad, especially at this time of year. Dave
Hi, Rob -- I'm sorry to learn of your Dad's passing. I know the two of you were very close. Great video tribute.
