In your sadness try to remember, as the title to your thread states, your Dad went Home. No more pain, no sadness, and now with all those beloved by him that preceded him Home. He will be waiting, many years from now hopefully, but he will be waiting to greet you Home as well.

My best friendís wife father was an Atlantic merchant marine, sunk twice, died at home in his 90ís. No benefits but had a color guard at his internment. Your Father is another unsung hero who will be held close as long as hero'sí memories are permitted to be remembered. Thank you for sharing his story.

Many great words by the posters above. Sincere condolences to you and your family...thank you for sharing his story and achievements, knowing he had so many more than what's mentioned here.
The Merchant Marines do not get the credit, or press they deserve for their critical role in the service and defense of this country. I got to meet and know several of them while stationed in California and was amazed at their stories, just like that of your dad.
No words can fill the hole you are certainly feeling, but may the memories and love provide you comfort in the days ahead.

Deepest regards,

Participating in a gun buyback program because you think criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think your neighbor has too many kids.

I don't care what branch these men served in. They were all heroes. God Bless.
