A brief foray into RL

Yesterday was Veterans day, here in the US. A day to celebrate and honor those who served and are currently serving our Armed Forces. It has a bigger meaning for me than it does for many, as my late grandfather served in WWII and was a POW in Germany. I will spare the details of what he did, but, he lost his right arm when their bomber was shot down.

He lived a relatively normal life, even without his dominant hand. I can only really remember one thing he could never do; every day, he'd come stand next to Grandma, and have her button his cuff on his left arm.

I just wanted to say thank you, to those who have protected and served our country, you do more than most of us will ever know.
