Veterans of WW2 and others, if they’re around need to be honored.
My dad served aboard USS Heermann at the Battle of Leyte Gulf. He died 36 years ago. Both grandfathers were veterans also, one was WW1 and the other was Spanish American War. Back in the 1950s, I even remember speaking with a great uncle who was over 100 years old at the time. He’d served under General Lee in the Army of Northern Virginia. I remember listening to a first hand account of the Battle of Cold Harbor from him.
Wow,sounds like you had your fair share of greatness in your family!
Too cool, thanks for sharing!
That’s amazing. Too bad you didn’t have a recorder for your civil war great uncle.
