In our family, that is my father, who served in Montgomery’s 8th Army in North Africa (think Tobruk and Monte Cassino), my father-in-law, who skippered a landing craft into Utah beach on D-Day, and my mother-in-law who served in the Red Cross at the front lines in Europe.

Thanks to them, and millions like them, civilization was saved from the nightmare of Nazism and Japanese Imperialism.

God Bless them all.
