United States Marine Corps.
United States Navy.
These are the branches in which my grandfathers served. I’m quite proud of them. This Veterans Day, I’m more proud than ever.
I spent my morning walking around my old high school that has gone through numerous changes since I graduated 9 years ago. I looks quite different, but feels the same. I went back because I knew Jimmy Gentry was speaking for a special assembly.
Coach Gentry is a World War II Veteran, and he was one of the first US soldiers to discover Dachau Concentration Camp. Jimmy is a great storyteller. The stories he tells of what it takes to serve our great country made me appreciate more what it means to be a US soldier.
I will post pictures of my grandfathers as soon as I can get them. Until then, thank you, Pawpaw. Thank you, Papa.
