    My grandpa served in the Philippines during WWII. He NEVER wanted to go back.

    I, on the other hand, would be very interested to see where he served. This brought a little tear to my eye thinking about him, fighting there, and how we celebrate our freedom today, in part, because of that. Thanks!

    Staggering to think about all that those memorials were built to attest to.
