“Dad said he wore the hat in the hopes that people would come up and share their stories of their service in the military with him,” said Donna Edwards of the baseball cap she recently had photographed to honor her father. “A lot of others would simply come up and shake his hand and thank him for his service,” she added. 

What struck us most about this hat is that it has been meticulously taken care of. For us, it symbolized the idea that even though its owner had been through a great deal of sacrifice, he maintained a great deal of pride. 

“He was a most excellent father and human being.”

 We salute you, Mr Edwards. Thank you, Donna Edwards of Ogden, UT for letting us be a part of this terrific tribute.
