Veterans on Father's Day

Veterans on Father's Day

What is there really left to say
For veterans here at Father's Day;
Which one was war you were in?;
Where should I really start to begin?

On active duty my Dad did die,
And we will never know why;
Enlisted which took a lot of nerve
And for his country he did serve.

They buried him into deep blue sea
In Med which still does remind me
For his country whole life did give
So the rest of us all could live.

This is all true. He died on the Aircraft Carrier 
Intrepid CVA-11 August 1956 in the Med.
