TINE TAFL (There Is No End To A Father's Love) Shield Pendant
A a medivac pilot in Vietnam, Chaplain Larry Sharp knew the risks of war and the uncertainty of families left behind. Anticipating deployment for Desert Storm, he wanted to leave his children a reminder of his love in case he did no come home. Inspired by Luke 15:31 and George Strait, Chaplain Sharp tucked his children in at night with a prayer, a kiss and the "There Is No End" to which each child responded "To A Father's Love". Eventually they shortened their secret code to TINE TAFL. This shield is made in honor of all service members who serve in far places but leave behind a reminder TINE TAFL.
