The last World War turned on this day 75 years ago.  If that is history you aren’t familiar with, you owe it to yourself and those who sacrificed on our collective behalf before to learn more.  I offer a humble thank you.  Thank you to those who have served.  Thank you to those who lived on and to those who we wish had.


Photo credit unknown. Unfortunately the photographer cannot be credited as this is a photograph in our family which did not have that information on the back.


I thank my grandfather, Percy – he’s sitting in this photo taken during WWII, for his service and the life he led afterwards despite the horrors he endured and the friends he lost.
