My father died from cancer in 1969, and when I heard a veteran could get an service for his or her time served, I contacted a local D.A.V. rep and asked if I could get one for my dad. He said I could not get one posthumously. So I let it go for a day or two. Then I got thinking about all the awards I have seen given to veterans well after their death. So, I called the governors office and a lady there said she would talk to Gov. Scott about it. She called me the next day and said Gov. Scott said most definitely yes. So, when the ceremony came to Live Oak, I went and got to honor my dad.
