This is coming a day late, but happy Veterans Day, Dad! My father was a Captain in the U.S. Air Force, and I’m so, so proud of him. On Monday, Mitch, my mom and I cheered him on as he marched up Fifth Avenue with the Union League Club in New York City’s Veterans Day Parade. It was awesome. Dad, thank you for your service to our country, and for letting me take control of the plane that one time. (That was cool.) ;) I love you so much!
