My Dad served in WW2 as a medic. From Normandy, into Belgium and, ultimately, into Germany, he didn’t think of himself as a hero. The photos of the destruction, the people he and his Blackhawk 67th Field Hospital unit tried to help, and of the moments they could “mug” for the camera in rare times of relaxation, reveal much about the heroics of American soldiers.

He taught me there are humble heroes serving everyday in thousands of ways to protect the United States and its freedom. He was a hero to me for his service. He didn’t think of himself as a hero even though he volunteered. For him, it was the right thing to do.

I thank God for men and women who today believe it is the right thing to do.
