Remembering My Grandfather And His Brother On This Pearl Harbor Day
The first two photos are of my Grandfather who left a wife and young daughter (my mother) behind and served as a US Navy SeaBee in the Aleutian Islands.
The last photo of the sailor with the Springfield 03 is his brother, my Godfather.
I never met my Grandfather. He died before I was born.
Much to my shame, I did not stay in contact with my Godfather, who is long gone also.
I have often wondered what these two gents would think today about the country they served way back then...
Knowing a little bit about both men from family stories, I'm pretty sure they would be saddened and disgusted.
