My dad and me, in early 1968. He was on a break from Officer training school out of Fort Benning, Georgia. My mom and I had moved to Georgia to be near him while he trained. He took a turn holding me when he got home from "school," (really an extremely rigorous training camp), and naturally he crashed out from exhaustion. He left for Vietnam a few months later.
