    They Have Risked Their Lives and Should Be Thanked

    My GrandfatherThere's

    so much to say about how some had ended up with their stories during or after serving for their country. My grandfather was a veteran and after service he lived the rest of his life in silence. I never saw him smile, never seen him walk either. He has become distant to everyone...
