Memorial Day Tribute to my Father


Today is Memorial Day and I'd like to thank all the service men and women, past and present, for protecting this great country and defending our freedom.  During this day, please take the time to remember our fallen heroes.  One of those great people was my father, Harley Leon Forrester. He served in the U.S. Air Force in Korea during the Korean conflict. He then joined the Air National Guard, retiring in 1992 as a master segeant. My father passed away in 2005, but he'll always be a hero to me.

Have a fun and safe Memorial Day!

It's great to honor him! We had a wonderful Memorial Day. We spent a good part of the day at Memorial Park.

There is always great honor of those who fight for our freedom. It makes it extra special when it is someone very close to you.
