I’ll be darned.
I was not aware of that.Your grand dad seems like quite a guy.
Yes he was: immigrated from Italy before 1900. Never took a dime from the G. Joined the calvery in WWI to get his citizenship. Hated democrates with a passion “I came here to get away from the communists and socialists, not going to vote for them”. Never joined social security because it was a “government scheme”. Unfortunately he died 50 years ago but I recall him fondly.
