May 27th marks the one year anniversary of my Dad's passing. Coincidentally, Dad served our country in World War II, so this time of year is especially significant to me. Edgar George Lizotte left an indelible impression on me. If it weren't for him, I would not be as committed to lifelong learning as I am today.
I am sharing below my tribute to my Dear Old Dad. I hope this letter, which celebrates his life, inspires you to acknowledge a mentor in your life, and the many women and men who have proudly and fearlessly served our country.
