Speaking as someone whose father was sitting in the Philippines in August 1945, and who had already been told he was going to be part of either Operation Coronet or Operation Olympic...I don't care why they dropped them. I'm just damn glad they did, because without them, I doubt I'd be here.

Even if your father was not killed in the line of duty, even if he was "safe" at sea, any delay of his return to America would have changed the circumstance of your conception. He may have sired an offspring but it wouldn't have the same exact genetic code that you posses.
