to add to the above- Brother-Nephew-my Cousin's two sons-and my two friends ...
Grandfather-you came here as a new immigrant from Denmark- joined the US Army-to serve in WW I -earned the Purple Heart- raised the SSB every morning and lowered her every evening -at dusk-I questioned-
"Grandpa-why do you raise the American flag every day? What about your other country."
"Carol, Ve are in America-don't verry about the old country."
I didn't really 'get it then'-finally 'got it' when I did a self study of the TRUE history of this great Republic.--
Thank you all - listed above.
Thank you -our BEST for serving past and present...
