Military

My Grandfather was a good Christian man who loved his family. He was a simple man and he didn't like to talk about "the war" except to tell us kids that he often thought of jumping out of the plane over France when he would go down to check on the landing gear extension. When his family was together, he would say,
"It's just good that we could all be together". I'm so proud of his service to our country!
