I've been thinking a lot today about my family, friends, and aquaintances I've known that have served our country. I have 2 close friends that have made multiple tours of the middle east in the last 5 years with the Marines, thank you.
I've always had a respect for Veterans because of my grandpa. I do vaguely remember him being a member of the V. F. W. and I remember me having no clue what that was. I remember how he would march in the parades - proudly.
This last year my grandmother gave me this article about my grandpa and his brothers. My grandpa left this earth almost 17 years ago, but not a day goes by that I don't think about him and miss him. I love you so much ACJ. Those were my grandpa's initials, his grandpa called him that. And then my grandpa called me that.
Here is the text of the article that is pictured:
Love you ACJ.
