This is my grandfather during World War II. He flew planes into the battlefields to give relief and pick up wounded soldiers. Today he is 91 years old, and he is one of the most wonderful men I have ever known. I am proud to be his granddaughter, and I am so proud of the stand he took when the world was crumbling and he knew something needed to be done. To my dear grandfather and all of the other men and women who have sacrificed themselves in history for the good of this nation, I salute you. Thank you for your hard work and your sacrifice.
