We are honored to have our great-grandparents (my grandparents) here from PA, visiting with us in TN this week. On Tuesday we attended a lovely Memorial Service and luncheon at the VFW for Veteran's Day. My grandfather (WW2 vet) shed many tears yesterday, remembering those harrowing days as he fought and was injured during the Battle of the Bulge. He also talked a lot about those who made the ultimate sacrifice and did not make it home again. It is an honor to hear his stories; his personal journey through those dark days.
