my grandpa went on the Honor Flight a year & a half ago, got to see his brother's grave at Arlington even though they hadn't been close or even spoke in many many years.

my grandpa was by far my favorite WWII vet, served as a marine in the pacific & saw all the hell it had to offer, amazing that he came out of it alive much less in one piece. he left the service after the war with 3 purple hearts & a silver star. he finally got his peace november 1st 2012 & no longer had to suffer with PTSD, which haunted him from wars end till death. i can't imagine going through what he did, nor can i imagine going through what our vets have done today. truly remarkable people...
All I've had today is like 6 gummi bears & some scotch
