A heart-felt thanks to those of you who have honored my dad with your personal messages. I still have two weeks before meeting him at the airport with a mailbag to present him, filled with notes from my friends honoring him for his Korean War service. He will be returning from Washington D.C. on the Freedom Honor Flight after viewing the war monument.
I’ve just completed a 5 x 7″ watercolor of Dad’s bronze star medal awarded for valor during his tour. I have framed it and wrapped it as a gift to include in the mailbag. There are greeting cards also printed with this image on the front, the inside blank for messages still pending.
If you are still interested in writing my dad, then you could send whatever you wish printed inside the card to me. He was Staff Sgt. Jerry Tripp. I cannot thank you enough for this. The outpouring of support has already been deeply stirring.
Thank you so much,
