If you look at the odds, it’s a miracle I was ever born.
Both of my grandfathers are veterans of World War II: one in Europe for the army, the other a submariner for the Navy who saw the flag raised at Iwo Jima.
Both were lucky to survive and eventually contribute to creating my parents.
I wrote about both of them and their stories last year, so many of my readers have not read about them.
Please do. Read the post to honor them and share their story.
You will be amazed. Trust me.
Today is Veteran’s Day.
Whether you agree or disagree with the war they fought in, it doesn’t matter.
They served. They put their lives on the line so we didn’t have to.
Honor them. Say “thank you”. Buy them a cup of coffee or dinner.
And remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
I said it a year ago, but I have to say it again.
Thank you, G-pa. Thank you for your service to our country.
