He was a hero to me, too, and to many Americans who feel honored to have received his gift of sacrifice for my freedom. Thank you for sharing this important moment in the history of your family, and in the history of this country. You have good reason to be proud of all he did during his time of serving his country.

Very, very good. I have only one teensy suggestion, that you should end with "My dad was a hero." When you add "at least he was a hero to me", it's almost as if you're lessening his hero status. He was a hero to all of us.
Indeed, the Purple Heart gives evidence that your dad was a hero for all U.S. citizens. Glad that you were able to get the documents you needed to fill in the missing info. :)

I am so sorry, Judy, I just can't read this. Thinking of sailors like this, with my own out there, I can't do it. They are heroes, all these from the past and the present. I pray safety for them as they defend our country.
What a nice way to honor and remember your dad. This was good.
