Veterans Day

This is a photo from Okinawa that we keep on our fireplace mantle.

Honoring my late father-in-law, Gerald James Shea, He was an Army veteran of both World War II and the Korean War.

He was a lifetime member of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 972, an emeritus member of the Seismological Society of America, a member of the NRA, member of the Inventors Hall of Fame, and a member of Hoosier Association of Science Teachers Inc.

He opened the first seismological station recognized by the government, in Terre Haute in 1948, was on staff at Indiana State University, held a solar energy patent and worked on the polio vaccine while at Pfizer. He retired a
medical technologist from Pfizer.

Pop is second from the right in the photo:

We love you pop and miss your laughter. We have wonderful memories of you and will always share them.
