Veteran’s Day


Veteran’s day is upon us again.  Today is the day we remember all those who served their country.  2018 is also the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1.  My grandfather Chase was in the Ardennes is WW1 – stringing wire and scouting German positions.  He got gassed up there.  A quarter if a century later his son was in the Ardennes in the Battle of the Bulge in WW2.  Ultimately his tank brigade rolled up on a German concentration camp, a vision he never forgot and only whispered about in the last few years of his life and only to a couple people.  I was one.  War is hell, and we should honor all our vets.
