Few years back with my best shipmate Marley (station dog) and a recipient of the Coast Guard Medal of Commendation for ice rescue. We are now both Veteran's and both come from a line of service men like my father was, so when they ask how long did I server I say.. "All me bloomin’ life. Me father was King Neptune, me mother a mermaid. I was born on the crest of a wave and rocked in the cradle of the deep. Me eyes is stars, me teeth is spars. Me hair is hemp and seaweed. And when I’s spits, I’s spits tar. I’s tough, I am, I is, I are."
Stay strong Veteran Brothers
