We were proud to be able to accompany my grandparents to the Memorial Day parade. My grandfather served on a Destroyer in the South Pacific during WWII. My grandmother also trained as a nurse to serve with the WAVES. It was very touching to see several people come up to them during the parade to thank them for their service.
They’ve shared some good stories with us about life during WWII and what it was like to serve on a navy ship with Kamikaze planes falling from the sky. Hearing those tales makes us even more grateful for their loyalty to our country and God’s protection of their lives! A big thank you to all our service men and women who face similar dangers everyday. We won’t forget those who gave everything for our freedom.
