A great pic of my dad!

My brother just took this recently, and I'm so proud. My dad lost a lot of weight through Weight Watchers, and this is his uniform he wore in his prime.

He was in the Navy, and did (shhhh!) secret stuff. I love him so much.



Hat's off to you, dad.

1. It really is a very good picture

As an artist I can tell you I would love to draw that face. It looks wonderfully lived in and full of strength and character.

And for an old lady like me, he's very handsome!

10. Very nice!

He's a very handsome man. Has he ever considered a second career as a model?

11. Have to agree with others



Dad's a looker....

( There'll be no living with him now! )

Thanks for sharing such a fine portrait, and thank your pa for his service.

12. An excellent photo.

Please thank your dad for me for his service.

Did he serve pre-1959? Just noticing the 48-star flag.
