35. When I hear Taps, I always lose it. Sorry

for your loss, but be thankful that he did have a long life.

A few years ago we had my dads funeral at a National Cemetery in Illinois, he lived to be 88. He was a WW2 Army infantry veteran who fought in some nasty battles in Europe. He spoke 5 different languages and was used as translator on the front lines.

Since I'm a Vietnam Era veteran, my wife and I plan to be buried in the same cemetery.
