  • My grandfather remembered, a Ranger in WWII

    my grandfather was among the allies who climbed pointe-du-hoc Normandy. He was a Ranger who fought along side American Indian scouts/soldiers in his unit from Italy to the beaches at Normandy and into Germany. I merelywish to honor and remember his difficult sacrifice in the second world war. He lost his best friend overseas...his sacrifice and committment are remembered by his grand children to this day...he was a quiet man a rarely spoke accept when he dicussed the war at length...

    I invited other members 2 posts and remember their grandparents on this day...

    t is what the members make it...

    May the soul of my father and my grandfather rest in peace...

    sincerely

    My Dad wasn't in D-Day, but he did fight across Europe as an infantryman. His mini-bio is here on ACG. Look in the personalities section for the Best Assistant BARman in the Army.
