Today, I said goodbye to my Grandfather, Clifford Gothard. He was a man whose life embodied the idea of "The Greatest Generation." He was born on October 4, 1914 (it has been suspected that his birth was one of the many triggers that instigated the Great War). He grew up on a farm and left school in the eighth grade to help his family. During the depression, he worked in the Civilian Conservation Corps, building state parks and public works. he volunteered for the Illinois National Guard, and trained as a radio operator at Fort Benning. He served with the 37th Infantry Division in the Pacific Theatre for the duration of WWII, and was awarded the Good Conduct Medal (he claims this was a mistake :-) ), the Purple Heart, and the Bronze Star. His other decorations include the Combat Infantry Badge, the Presidential Unit Citation, the Meritorious Unit Citation, and the Philippine Republic Presidential Unit Citation. After the war, he returned home to Stockton, IL. He met my Grandmother and offered to carry her ...

It was a tough run on Sunday with the heat but I did improve on my time from last year! I ran the half-marathon in 2:01:40, not bad but my goal was to go under 2:00. Next year! Something I wrote after the race. The Decorated Soldier Veterans Day-- I ran a half-marathon in honor of my dad who passed away last January. He was a World War II veteran. As I struggled through the heat and humidity, I thought about his struggle that lasted two months of his life. He battled, he worked, he tried with great effort to get well, we all cheered him on. But he didn’t conquer his disease and I didn’t run the time I wanted to run in his honor. But as I reflected, I realized that I did respect his memory by living like him, those three or four hours. I appreciated that he fought his battle with great courage and determination, just like I did in my run. My dad was a decorated soldier-- the Bronze Star Medal, Good Conduct Medal, Combat Infantry Badge, American Campaign Medal, and Weapons Qualification Badge. He w ...
On this day observing those who wore a military uniform in defense of our nation, I am again reminded of my father and my uncles (his brothers, and my mother's only brother). My father, Robert Edward Lee (fourth cousin, four generations removed from General Robert E. Lee), served in the US Navy in World War II as a radioman / gunner in the South Pacific. He was a recipient of the Navy Cross; one Purple Heart; The Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal; and the Navy Good Conduct Medal (and a couple of others which I cannot recall). He went into the Navy for all of the best reasons of a young patriot: his older brother, Jack Hopoken Lee, enlisted when Jack was 17 and told my dad for nearly a year that in ther Navy he would get three meals a day (better than the one or two his family could put on the table); sleep in a dry bed; new clothes; and would daily wear clean clothes. (Several of his brothers - or my dad - or all of them were bedwetters at home, and his mother was indifferent to doing laundry, so dry bedding ...

I changed my profile picture to my dad's boot camp graduation picture in honor of his memory and service to our country during WWII. This photo was taken in 1943 when he was 18 years old. Daddy was introduced to WWII by an amphibious landing at the Anzio beachhead. He was a part of the famous "Ring of Fire" that took the beachhead from the Germans. He was captured while pursuing the Germans as they fled to Rome. He was a POW for the remainder of WWII, and suffered greatly at the hands of Hitler's SS officers. Daddy was just a little known corporal in the 5th Army, 1st Armored Division, "Old Ironsides," but he was a decorated hero. Here is a listing of his awards: (1) Bronze Star- for destroying a German tank with a grenade; (2) Purple Heart- two-time recipient; (3) Prisoner of War; (4) WWII Victory Medal; (5) European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal; (6) American Campaign Medal; (7) Army Good Conduct Medal; (8) Rifleman's Badge; (9) Sharp-Shooter Badge.
