Again for Bret, A picture representing lonliness. This is my Dad. It is while he was in Vietnam. He doesn't express emotion much, but when I look at this photo I imagine he is lonely, being away from his family for so long, and being so young. He is the third oldest of 12 kids so he was used to being surrounded by family, and here he was not. I do know that lonly or not, he was proud of his service and I am proud of him. And he still cracks me up when he tells us about the ladies yelling, "boom boom GI 5 dolla's!" I think those ladies probably embarrassed him. I like my Daddy. A lot.
