I took this pic to share with my dad. He was 9 years old when WW II broke out. Like most septuagenarians he is a big WW II history buff. And like many off-the-boat Irish, he became a New York City police officer after serving two years in the U.S. Army. It is no coincidence that I majored in History with a focus on WW II studies and minored in Sociology with a focus on Criminology. When your father is 48 years older than you and from another country you have to find things to talk about other than the deliciousness of my mother’s stew.
At the Air & Space Museum I was looking at these pieces of memorabilia and noticed the word “shamrock” above a fetching photo of a bathing beauty. I immediately thought of my dad and knew what he would have said. “Oh look, something Irish!”
