My grandfather got into a fight at a bar. The judge gave him the option join the military or jail time. He went into the military and ended up first
wave to hit Omaha Beach Normandy. He never talked about it. I wish I knew more but sadly he passed 10 years ago of cancer.
On another note my grandmother worked in a munitions factory and made parts for the bombs dropped on Japan. Her brother was an airplane mechanic and
was at Pearl Harbor. My other Grandfather was in Korea and my uncle died in Vietnam.
I had plans to go into the Marines in the mid 90's. Unfortunately I came down with paranoid schizophrenia in my late teens. I always liked to
challenge myself physically and mentally. I thought the military would be the ultimate challenge.
