It makes me miss my Grandpa. I'll be sure to ask my Grandma about his service in WWII the next time I visit. I always enjoy hearing about it, and there's something new every time. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for sharing that piece of your family's history with the BR.
upstairs with letters my grandfather wrote to my grandmother when he was overseas during WWII. I can't wait to read them, but for some reason I just can't seem to get started. There are hundreds of letters, but I just think it will be too much.
Great story and pictures. I wish I could photoshop. I'd take the picture of your young grandfather and have it standing next to him now in front of the wall. It may be cheesy or it could be moving...I'm not sure.
...Marauders. I'm going to share this with him. His father was a great and tough man. He'll appreciate the read...thanks so much for sharing it.
I passed a WWII vet the other day before the game. He was sitting on a bench just along the stretch of grass running up to the Dome, and near Father Sorin.
I wanted to stop and shake his hand. However I paused thinking I didnt want to bother him taking in the glorious fall weather and the sounds of gameday on campus.
This post will forever cause me to pause and thank our great warriors.
Where are my kleenex?
Your grandfather is a great American. God bless him.
Thank you for sharing.
He's a hero and because of men like him, we all here are free to live our lives as we wish.
I'm about to head past Grant Park
