My grandpa Howard served in World War II as a doctor; he helped save people’s lives during any battles –including the Battle of the Bulge. My dad was in the Naval reserves and almost had to go to the Korean War, and he was proud that he got to serve his country. I remember playing in his old navy uniform as a child.
My cousin was in the Marines, and now his son just joined the Air Force. My uncle served in the Korean War, and so I have many people to be thankful for this Memorial Day.
I am thankful for our country and all the people that have risked their lives to protect it!
