My Dad, Naval Hero
This was my dad, well before I was born. That's his actual U.S. Navy trunk. My older sister (by 14 years) had it for many years, and when she passed away it came to me. We always laughed that when she was a toddler she could recite daddy's serial number without missing a beat. "Nine eighty-nine eighty-nine oh two!"
The trunk gets used every December as a Christmas tree stand! We tip it on its side, set the tree on top of it, and drape the base with a Christmas tree skirt. It makes it the perfect height to view through our front window!

Daddy always said he fought the Battle of the Great Lakes. He was stationed in Chicago for the duration of his service.
