A day that will live in infamy

Once again I post this picture of my dad, Joseph Piccirilli. I think of him today which is the anniversary of the attack at Pearl Harbor Hawaii...now 69 years ago. For our family it was a celebration that he survived that day, along with his brother John. If not for that fact, I would not be here today and for that I am grateful. He was proud to serve his country and taught me to be a proud American.

One can feel how much you love your father. You must be proud of him for what he had done for his country, his family and you.
