I was in they United States Navy before id ever heard a word about who my great-grandfather happen to be. A few weeks ago I stumbled accross this page. After staring at his picture for awile, I decided id introduce my self to him. But just before I started typing I noticed there was a page two. I wasent prepare for what I was about to see, and I left that day without typing a thing. When I turn the page it was him introducing himself to me, because he was not there alone. He was among hero's who didn't even know who he was, yet found their way there, and it blew me away to see who it was hanging out with him, I ( turned the page, bowed and walked away, for now I knew what a hero was.
