Honoring a Veteran
My father, John Thomas Herren (1918-2004), served in the Army, Army Air Corp, then the Air Force, for a total of 23 years of service. He earned a commendation while serving in England, for having the most efficient repair rate for airplanes in WWII. He did not graduate from high school, but while in the Air Force he got his GED, and went on to get a college degree. All while raising four daughters.
