My father-in-law and a favorite photo of ours.
This is one of our favorite photos with my father-in-law (center). Also seated on the left of the photo is good friend Moe and Orin. The gentleman on the right is another veteran they met that day and I am sorry I don't have his name. As I mentioned earlier this past weekend we joined Gregg's Dad and several other shipmates for an annual reunion for the ship they were on which sank off the coast of Normandy on D-Day. In June 2004 he and several others went over to France for the D-Day Rememberance. While walking around they were approached by a group of young soldiers - men and women - who thanked them for their service. It was a very touching moment as the two groups sat down together, and these young people listened to Gully and his friends talk about their experiences. They were very special young people and they would probably be surprised to learn that I have a great love for them to this day, the same kind of love that I have for Gully, Moe and Orin, and all these wonderful veterans we owe so much to.
