Memorial day

I have some catching up to do.
Most of you know my affection for the WW2 vets.
They were a welcome sight in my youth in the Flanders. They were a welcome sight for my grandparents and mother in WW1.
How could I ever forget ????
I try to tell the stories to the young who are willing to listen and not roll their eyes in boredom.
So I did with my grandson Peter and his friend, they wanted to know more and more. We went to the old cemetery and put little flags on the Veterans graves.
Soon the boys were reading names and dates and went looking for others.
It started to sink in.
