Happy Birthday, brother!

Happy birthday, Corwin! My older brother and only sibling has a birthday today. He has always been the greatest brother any girl could have. He definitely has always heard a 'different drummer.'

He started driving a tractor at age 10 and working on a community farm. Our mother drove him to the airport to take flying lessons and he had his pilot's license before his driver's license. He is a 1963 graduate of the Air Force Academy and had the privilege of having President John F. Kennedy speak at his graduation. He flew F-100's in Vietnam and was rescued after being shot down in August, 1967. He was a pilot for United Air Lines for 32 years.

He has been married for 46 years, father of 4 children and grandfather to 6. He loves hunting and fishing and his Gordon setters. He loves rocking chairs and that is where you usually find him when at home.

He is kind, a deep thinker and the kind of person you want as a best friend.

I love you, brother, and hope you have many more healthy years ahead. I look forward to seeing you soon. Love, your favorite sister

    Happy Birthday Corwin!!! During the presidential campaign Susan told me of your mission with Col Day years ago. So I recognized him during McCain's campaign. Thank you for your service to our country. God Bless you. Have a great day and year.

  2. I'm sure your post is one of the nicest gifts your brother receives today. I'll bet he's as proud of you as you are of him.
