    I bet he has a ton of incredible stories! You should record them to pass down to the family. They just don't make 'em like they used to!

    Freedom isn't free. I hope no one ever forgets what happened 69 years ago today. Please say thanks from my grateful family.

    This was truly a great generation. My late FIL was a Marine, he was captured on Corregidor and spent 3 years in a Japanese prison camp. It was there that he got to hold his younger brother in his arms as he died. Give your Grandpa a big hug for me.
    I fought in Baghdad with my little brother. I couldn't sleep if he was out doing work. (I could hear the sounds of work being done) The thought of losing a brother in a pow camp is just too much to process. I'll never forget your short story of your FIL.
     
    The amazing part was neither one of them new the other was in the same camp. His younger brother was on the Bataan Death March and survived and then was put in the pow camp.They ran into each other about a week before he died and got to see each other one last time.

    I went to bed early and was watching a Canadian series called Bloody Normandy. Brought me to tears. 150 Canadian soldiers captured by the Huns and executed in many different locations. No one was ever brought to trial.

    Travis, thank him for me. We truly owe that generation and the men and women of WW II a debt that can never be repaid. Great story with incredible achievements!

    Thank you to your grandfather.  Tonight I finished reading UNBROKEN by Laura Hillenbrand.  The story about Louie Zamperini who was an Olympian and bombadier who was shot down in the South Pacific.  Parts are very difficult to read but has given me a new respect for these men.
