Happy Veterans' Day!

In memory of my father, Major Arthur P. Yarborough, Sr.  (Army, Ret.)
June 21, 1924 - October 4, 1997

My father began his service as one of the first black Marines at Montford Point, NC.  From there, he enlisted in the Army, and went on to serve for over 20 years, retiring in 1964 with the rank of Major.  You can read more about my dad and his military service here.

Thanks, Daddy, and thanks to all veterans!!!

Great portrait Renate. I see a strong resemblance between father and daughter.
