Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is World War II Veteran Allen Seymour.

Allen served in the Navy from 1943 to 1946.

He was stationed at Moffett Air Field in Sunnyvale, California. This base was home for aircraft used in coastal defense. He was with a bomber squadron during his time there.

Allen and his wife are celebrating 70 years of marriage today, June 28, 2017.

Thank you for your service, Allen, and happy anniversary!
