52 THINGS: Dad's Medical and Military Training

Ol' Myrt here barely made it through the journal flip without sobbing as I recalled a few anecdotes my father shared with me before he passed. Find out why is med school lab partner was immediately dismissed from the university, and why Dad prayed for three little children who would grow up without their mother.

In preparing the journal, I recognized family vacations with Dad were precious -- a departure from the constant stress of life and death situations. No wonder he expected perfection. If I make a mistake as a genealogy instructor, someone will have to look at a different microfilm or digital record set. Dad's decisions as a physician and surgeon were a matter of life and death for his patients. He was faithful to his calling - no wonder his patients loved him so.

I've created this not-so-mini-journal to go with Dad's 50 year service pin from his medical school, along with his family practice pin. If you want to know more about how to make mini-journals, visit my second YouTube channel - Myrt's Journal located here:

DearMYRTLE is making these journals to document the family heirlooms she has inherited and share ancestral stories with her children and grandchildren. This video element is important since due to Covid-19 isolation restrictions, Myrt's family cannot come over to explore the old steamer trunk holding these treasures.
