The RG took these photos in 2013
when he joined one of our sons in Hawaii.
It was to be our son's last long deployment of his
Navy Air Wing career and he gifted his Dad passage with him from Honolulu to SanDiego on what is called a Tiger Cruise.
They were blessed to have time before the cruise to tour the islands.
The RG had only been in the airport enroute to Viet Nam 45 years before. And his father had been stationed there during WWII
so it was very special for him in many ways.
Isn't the sky pretty in the last photo?
(or maybe I chose it for the special fella gazing across the beach ;)
He is back to civilian life after serving
for twenty years and now enjoying daily life with his wife and son.
We are so thankful as a family for the memory this will always be.
Happy USA Thanksgiving to everyone stopping by.
And Happy Day to all.
