Both my parents were part of the Greatest Generation and proudly served in World War II.  My mother served with the Navy at a hospital in Seattle, taking care of the wounded returning from overseas.  My father was with the 4th Marine Division, and made the assault landings at Kwajalein, Saipan, Tinian and Iwo Jima. And although both have passed on, I carry their example of integrity and selfless service as daily inspiration.
