I would like to take a moment to thank all of the veterans for their commitment and the sacrifices they have made for our country.
Today I'm thinking of my grandfather. He enlisted after his best friend was killed on the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor. He was originally part of the Army Air Corp (before what is now known as the Air Force), but was moved to serve as a soldier in the US Army as the Air Corp was not needing as many recruits as they were receiving. Granddad served "overseas" in Kodiak, Alaska (Alaska was not yet a state at that time, and as such, since he was stationed there, he was considered overseas).
