My father didn't serve in the Army as such but as a British engineer he helped repair bridges and rail lines destroyed in France during the war. Beth's grandfather was too young to serve in the first war, then too old in the second. He was a Toronto policeman who supposedly never was promoted because he had not served. We are grateful to now have a son-in-law who continues to serve after fifteen years with frequent deployments.

I want to honor my Dad. He went when his country called him to serve. He crossed from England to France shortly after D-day, running communications for the Army Air Corps on airbases for fighter planes. As soon as the infantry could capture a new airbase they moved forward to get the planes closer to the front. When it finally ended they asked him to stay and offered a big promotion. He responded "I want to go home to Tennessee".

Our world would be a different place if they hadn't done what they did.
