On this Veterans Day...

Silas Edward Massengill, United States Army - Served with distinction and honor under the command of Gen. Montgomery as the Allied Armies drove the Nazis out of North Africa. He was a tank commander in charge of 3 Sheridan tanks. Note the patches on the sleeve. He landed in Algeria, fought his way across North Africa and into Sicily, where his convoy was attacked. The truck he was riding in rolled over and broke his neck and back. He was sent home in a body cast and told he would never walk again. Upon release from the military hospital then at Ft. McPherson, and on crutches, he went to work for Delta Air Lines. Of those who knew him there no one knew of his 70% disability status with the VA.

So on this Veterans Day, I present with honor my own special Veteran, who happened also to be my father.

Thanks for serving, Dad.
