D-Day

My grandfather was there. I didn't find out that he was with General Bradley's staff (as a guard) until I was in college. Grandpa didn't talk much about the war, and he certainly didn't talk war with his womenfolk. His only story was about being on guard in England and nearly shooting an admiral who was in too much of a hurry to show proper ID.

Some time later, after Grandpa passed away, I found a copy of General Bradley's biography, and saw this picture:



Grandma, Mom, and all of my aunts and uncles think the fellow in the back looks like Grandpa.

I sure wish I knew for sure if it was him.

And I still miss him terribly.
