I was telling Emily about my experience in the Persian Gulf War I of 1991. I told her that my ship was to go in close to shore to do shore bombardment. The minesweepers cleared out a path through mine-infested waters two miles wide by ten miles long. We had to stay inside that box, or we could hit a mine.
Wait, she says, that minesweeper game is a real thing? I thought it was just a game!
Yes, I do love my daughter and these special moments we have together.
