Like Father, Like Son?
I found an old photo of my Dad from 1945 - when he had just joined the Navy and was home for a bit. I scanned it and have cut it down to just show him.
I also found a shot me of me from Afghanistan in late 2004.
I put them side by side and noticed that we looked an awful lot alike (despite my Dad's being taken when he was much younger). I guess we both have that - "uh-oh" look on our faces, heh heh.
At least Dad has forgiven me for being a ground pounder (Army). Both sides of my family had previously left the plains of Iowa to serve exclusively in the Navy. We also have the tradition of starting out as enlisted men, then later getting commissions. My father left the Navy as an 0-3, but he warned me when I was selected for O-4 that he wasn't going to call me "sir"... ha!
