Honoring MooJoo

IMG_2380

As it is Memorial Day, I would like to remember the man who brought me into this world.

My dad, John D. Moores, Jr.,  was born in Baltimore, MD in 1939.  Dad graduated from McDonogh School and subsequently joined the Navy in 1961, becoming a Lt. Naval aviator and serving on the USS Hornet through 1966.  He never talked about his time in Vietnam.  In fact, he saved most of his words in general for talking after a martini or a scotch.

Dad died five months ago.  It is still surreal for me.
