Remembering Dad on Memorial Day
I love having this photo of Dad at work. He was Chief of Pathology at Bridgeport Hospital for many years. He attended Yale and then Johns Hopkins for his medical training. There he met Mom who did her nursing training at Johns Hopkins. Romantic eh?
In WWII Dad served in the army as a medic and contracted TB. He spent a year in a veteran's hospital in Worcester, Mass. I didn't understand why he had disappeared. Mom took me to see him one day so I could see he wasn't dead. I stood in the parking lot and Dad came to the window and waved. Of course, I couldnt visit in person re: contagion.
Remembering all those who have kept us safe and free. Thank you!
