Google is celebrating Diego Velazquez- it figures. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I had the opportunity to talk with an older gentleman a few years ago, & the discussion came around to the military- I asked him if he had served. "Oh yeah", he replied. "Most everyone did in those days".
I pressed on- where did you go?
"Well, I was over in France, y’know, at Normandy." Then he quickly added, as if in apology, "But I was only there for the first three days ‘cause I got hurt & they sent me back…"
Yeah, ONLY the first three days at Normandy. Such are, & were, these men.
Thank you Charlie. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
