A Memorial

I will post my Pay it Forward blog post tomorrow if you are interested. For today, I thought it much more appropriate and important to remember a soldier.
This is my husband's grandfather. He was a second lieutenant in the US Army Air Corps who trained other soldiers to fly the B-25 Mitchell, a bomber plane, during WWII.  He was later transferred to "Fly the Hump" in Douglas C-54's from British India over the Himalayas into Burma and China.

He passed away a few days ago at the age of 92 at the assisted living facility where he resided. We will be having a graveside service and get together for the family tomorrow to celebrate his life. Take a moment today to remember those who have served this country as well as those who have given their lives for it.
