Thank you Pigface, for the grave reminder of what this day means. In all honesty, I completely forgot the importance of today. What with everything going on in the world and our own personal lives, unfortunately, I'm sure I wasn't the only one. But it's important that we do remember. We can't ever forget what sacrifices have been made for our freedom. So I thank you again.
Both of my grandfathers served in WWII, one Navy, one Army. The one that was in the Army passed away twenty years ago
, so I never got to speak to him about it
, but I do have a pair of Japanese slippers that he brought back with him. They were a woman's, but they could probably fit my two-year-old's feet.
My other grandfather, the one that was in the Navy, is still living, but there's an estangement there since my parent's divorce, so I never will get to ask him.
I don't know if there are any military on here, veteran's or active, but if there are, thank you for your sacrifices. And to all the soldiers who sacrificed all, R.I.P and God bless you all.
