#123 - Living History

Remember back a few months ago when I mentioned that we thought we had seen Brian's grandfather on a documentary special that was included with the movie, "Saving Private Ryan"?


Here is the screen shot:

Here was the full screen shot:
I didn't have any earlier pictures to compare them to, but here is the earliest one we had scanned:
FYI - Brian's dad is the twin on the right :)

Here are the girls with Papaw Christmas 2008.

Christmas 2009

You may not be able to tell with these pictures, but it really did look so much like him. And when he saw the screen shot and the documentary he thought it was him too! He told me that he landed in Normandy 3 or 4 days after the invasion and was a very blessed man to still be alive. He will turn 88 this year and he is a living history for our girls and we appreciate his service to our country so very much!!!

2 Timothy 1:3
"I thank God, whom I serve with a pure conscience, as my forefathers did, as without ceasing I remember you in my prayers night and day,"
