a hero of mine

I have a few heroes. Of course my first ever hero is my dad. But the other heroes in my life are family members that chose to serve their country. Today, Veteran's Day, I think of them and thank them.

I had lunch with my Grandfather today. He was a POW in WWII. I've only ever heard a snippit of what he endured. I understand it must be hard to relive. He recounted today crossing the Rhyne, on the last standing bridge, into Germany.

But I hope that we can get a recorded account in his words of what happened to him. What an imporant part of history this is and needs to be documented.

So, to my maternal Grandfather, my paternal Grandfather, two Uncles, five Cousins, a Grandfather-in-law, Father-in-law, Brothers of said in-laws, and countless numbers of friends who are also heros, I give them all serious gratitude for their service.

On a side note, props to restaurants that recognize our veterans...

I didn't know your grandfather was a POW. Many thanks to him for his service.
