It's father's day, diddnt expect to go down the rabbit hole. Thought I would tell some stories..lol
Dad was a vietnam vet, enlisted airman, anti sub warfare. Got his draft paperwork for the army whilst mapping SAM sites in nam with the navy. Funny, left hand never talked to the right. first girlfriend was a mousekateer, knew John wayne a first hand basis..cleaned his pool as a teenager....as well as said mouseketeers parents pool.lol
Man could have made millions with his ingenuity. In 72' IBM of Australia offered him citizenship to defect from the navy and stay. Nope not dad. He was offered $15000 from the navy to reenlist in late 72, they brought him in with the cash on the table. Nope, told his CO that he would rather suck dicks on the corner a Nickel a piece than stay....he went home to LA, Started driving tow, a man once tipped him a lion cub, cookie....kept her until she was 170lbs, then donated her to a sanctuary. Too big to handle.lol... a year later, got bored and reenlisted.
Man had solutions for every problem. Died two years ago going to Walmart. Heart stopped, fell over, and it was over. We feared somthing much worse. I made him dinner, he left to look at a pressure washer, and it was over. Best possible situation for my father, hated hospitals.
was shot down three times, evading for months in north Vietnam. For 4 years in the 80's he got a new job with the navy. Live In a free house in the mountains of Japan, and bring higher ups and politicians out skiing...Had a heart attack in 86 in the middle of the Mediterranean, Stayed in for four more years until 90'. Moved next door to my mom two years after I was born. The rest was history. He diddnt make me, but he was my dad.
RIP PO1 Walter Kingsbury
If your dad's alive, give him a call. Happy father's day guys
