…and I’m glad he did.

 

Like most WWII veterans, it was pretty hard to get my father to talk about his war experiences.  He was with the signal corps in Europe…laying down phone wires at the front so field commanders could talk to generals (and translating from French to English).

 

All he would say was that he heard plenty of bullets go whizzing by pretty close.

 

I can’t even imagine.

 

But I WILL share with you a poignant saying I found:

 

“…IF YOU WANT TO HONOR THE MILITARY MEMBERS WHO DIED FIGHTING FOR OUR FREEDOMS…THEN BE THE KIND OF PERSON WORTH FIGHTING FOR…”

 

That hits home for me.

What about you?
