This is my grandfather, Leo. He served in WWI and WWII. I wish I had been more mature during the years he was alive and asked him more about his life. The only comment I remember him making about the wars was that he wouldn’t have survived without God there with him in the dark places. If he were alive today, I would love the chance to thank him for all his service, which I could not comprehend when I was a child.
Thanks to everyone else who has served us, too.
How about you? Do you have a story of someone who served or a list of those in your family who have served? Leave it in the comments. It would be fun to create a list of people who we all want to thank!
