I finally found my grandfather after all these years. Yes, he did serve in the U.S. Air Force in WWII, Korea and Vietnam. I remember seeing pictures of him after he passed away getting awarded with medals. I am very proud of him.

I never got a chance to get to know him as he passed away before I turned five years old. I do remember my mother leaving to go to his funeral and bringing back the flag. I often wonder if his influence on me is what makes me love this Country so much. At 11 years old, during the Bicentenial, all I wanted for my birthday were the albums of the military and Country anthems. I would listen to them over and over.

I hope to meet my grandfather one day and thank him very much for protecting me and this Country.
