Veterans Day, My hero, my uncle!

Saturday, November 11, 2017

Veterans Day is so special! Veterans Day should be everyday as we are free because of the Veterans!

My uncle was a bombardier in WWII and dropped the first bomb in Germany. He flew 33 missions. Can you imagine being a 21 year old and seeing all the devastation and being told not to become close friends to your comrades as many planes won’t come back.

He lived to be 93 and his last three years he lived with us as he had Alzheimer’s. At 92 he was still riding his bicycle at least 2 miles a day and he would walk everyday at least a mile and a half.

He was like a father to me and taught me so much. He was my uncle by marriage but you would never have known it. My aunt was a living saint and helped everyone even though she did not have good health and when she was down no one could have better care of her than my uncle.

I honor my uncle and all veterans EVERYDAY!
