    Crazy to think how young all these guys were as well. Practically kids, with their entire lives ahead of them, yet still willing to sacrifice being able to marry, have a family, go to school, even work a boring 9-5 job. Definitely the greatest generation, and I’m happy your great-grandpa was one of the lucky ones who made it home!
