Of all the memories I have as a child, spending time with my grandparents was most definitely a high- lite in my life. Both of my grandparents were WWII Veterans, and many of the events that I went to as a kid involved the American Legion, in which they were proud members of.
My grandparents loved this country, and they taught us that our freedom’s here should never be taken for granted. They were both humble people, who worked hard their entire lives, but clearly were proud of being able to serve their country and all that it stands for. So, today I am honoring my grandparents, and all Veteran’s both past and present this Memorial Day. Thank you for protecting us, preserving our freedoms, and loving our country the way that you do.
