Remembering My Late Father On Father's Day

Today on Father’s Day I’ve been thinking about my late father, Edward Miller Davis.

My father is seen in the above photo with me when I was 17 years old and had just returned home in May of 1970 after completing Navy Boot Camp.   

My father, a Navy veteran of WWII who served as an Underwater Demolition Team (UDT) frogman, was proud and happy that I had joined the Navy. He was also proud that I had received orders to the aircraft carrier USS Kitty Hawk and would go on to serve on the carrier during the Vietnam War. 

(My father is the chief in the center of the UDT 5 team photo below).  

My father died in 1976 at the age of 57.
