Lt Richard L. Reed
My Dad's Uncle Richard joined the Navy successfully when he was 14. When he turned 18 he applied to be an Officer. He served in the Navy for 34 years and 3 wars. My Grand Uncle Richard and I share a kinship of being the only two men in the family that retired from military service. He drove 12 hours to attend my retirement ceremony standing in for my father. I am unbelieveably grateful to him for being there for me on that special day.
