It is Memorial Day. A day most people will be happy to not be at work, maybe go to a picnic. Sadly very few will remember the reason for it though. To remember those lost. Four of my uncles served in Nam, my Grandfather in WWII. On this day I’m thankful for those who served our Country and lost their lives; but I’m also thankful that my family members were able to return. While I have no doubt my Grandfather’s experiences eventually lead to his health problems, I’d like to briefly share the information I have about his time enlisted. This is from an 80th “Blue Ridge” Infantry division book I have.
