This story is a real testimony to what the heart of America and its Greatest Generation are all about, and is one of many stories that need to be told. Stories that bring out what America is really about – family and fatherhood.
There are stories that each Greatest Generation family has in their possession. Stories that need to be told. To be told to put into perspective what is really important – What we have in our hearts and do for each other. Stories that bring us together, not rip us apart. We all have them, but we need to get them out into the light.
WWII reunions will soon be losing their originals, but their families will keep going on. So must their stories. That is how we keep them among us. We would have no memories of those handshakes with Revolutionary or Civil War Veterans, if nothing was written about them.
