This is my Grandfather and Grandmother in May after they got married in 1945, What an adorable couple. My Grandparents were so good to us kids; They would take us Up North to there Cabin on the lake every summer until my Grandmother got sick with cancer when I was 11. She died of Breat Cancer when she was 54; I was 13 at the time. My Grandfather died of cancer when he was 73; I was 24.
This is my Grandfather; what a handsome man I think he was.
Veterans Day reminded me of my Grandfather and my son. They both served in the Navy, my Grandfather also served in the Marines as well. I am so grateful for all the men and women who serve our Country so we stay a free nation. I asked my mom for some information regarding my Grandfather's service in the Military. I will post a picture of my son in his military uniform as soon as he sends me some information about his Navy days. He is pretty busy at work right now, it might take a while for him to find time.
He was in the Navy, he was a medic, I know that he also served somehow in the Marines too because he was on an island fighting, at one point the planes were shooting and I remember that they shot right up to the tree he was standing under and quit firing.
He was in World War II served 1941 till 1945 I think I know he served until the war was over. Grandpa and Grandma got married May 23, 1945 in San Diego. California when he came into to port.
Hope this is what you wanted I really do not know a whole lot more because he never talked about it much. I am sure he saw a lot that hurt to talk about.
