Re: Anyone else get this?
Sometimes it's not worth the argument. Let him remember the way he remembers it. My dad wasnt as bad, but when he was in the south Pacific during the war, he really could have not cared less what shade of blue his aircraft was, or where the demarcation lines were. They were war machines and not models. When I made a model of his aircraft, and later of the ship he was on in the 1960s, he was thrilled. Go with the flow brother.
Ok, this is kinda off topic but military related. Has anyone else been told "You were never in the military so you don't know." My father is constantly saying this to me. To him, the Arizona was just gray on December 7th, Splinter Camouflage never existed in the US Navy, or any other navy for that matter, and America still has a dedicated training carrier. Regardless of evidence, "they don't know, I do, I WAS IN THE NAVY!" is his common reply.
