This article ran in the local paper back in 2008 but I think about the son finding his dad's Garand. My dad was in WWII and being the oldest son, I always wanted to hear some war stories. He was shot up bad and he rarely talked about his time in the service. Bad memories I am sure.

Anyway Dad was already gone when this article ran and I still think about it.
