Memorial Day

At her request, my daughter and I took a few minutes to listen to an interview my granddad, Russel Testerman, gave back in 2007.

In this interview, which goes on about fifteen minutes, he shared more about his time in World War II than he had ever been willing to tell either me or my dad.

It's not much, but it's what we have, so it's enough.

Thank you, veterans, for your sacrifice.
