Happy Birthday Daddy!
My dad, Jake, is a great man and a wonderful father, grandfather and great grandfather. I am proud and very blessed to be his daughter ♥
My dad has had an amazing life. He is a true American hero who served in World War II for nearly 3 years, receiving four medals. 3 Bronze Stars and a special medal for fighting on D-day. He was in the 121st Engineer Combat Battalion of the United States Army and battled in 3 major special series combat campaigns including D-day. His was one of the first American units to storm the beaches in Normandy. He married his high school sweetheart 3 weeks after returning from duty.
He owned his own business while I was growing up but he’s always been a song and dance man! Over the years, his talent, wit and charismatic charm has won him roles in plays, musicals and commercials. You might have seen his latest commercial for Kayak, it’s pretty funny, he plays Mr. Carroll…
