Dad has been a member of the American Legion for over 60 years. He joined not too long after he and Mom were married. It has been my fervent wish to get him to a monthly meeting ever since he's been sick. He never, ever missed a meeting until now. It finally came together this month, right on Veteran's Day. The meeting was held at Hale's Ales Pub in Ballard on what was a very dark and stormy night. It was not one of his better days but he was there, surrounded by his fellow veterans and good friends.
