Memorial

I wrote this post in 2007 in honor of my grandfather, a decorated WWII vet who has since died.

"The old clock is running down.  It may be quite a while before it completely stops; however, I thought it was a good time to tell you about being the 'Big Hero' of World War Two."

That is how my grandfather's letter begins.  It was written a couple of years ago, and came accompanied by a fat photocopied packet containing the history of his USAAF squadron. 

My thanks, respect, and remembrance to him and all our servicepeople.
