Photo hunters - Military and Veterans day

WE were not sure if the Photo hunt was for Military or Veterans day so we labeled it as both.

We borrowed the Ides from our friends at Cats ~ Goats ~ Quotes Thank you!

This was taken in November 1944 of a very tired warrior in Nancy France. He was 20 in this picture and he is our Mom's Dad!

These are the guys that were in the tank with him. Mom's Dad is the one kneeling on the right. The only one still living is the other kneeling man. He calls Mom's Mom every week to check on her. They lived in a Sherman tank together for two years.

What a wonderful tribute to your Grampy. War haz a way of making brothers out of strangers who serve together. Our Grampy still remembers all his buddies from the Korean War, and most of them are no longer living on this Earth, but they are in our Grampy's heart.

Mom's dad and brother were in the military. Mom thought about looking for pictures, but she didn't feel up to it.
