I'm actually in Michigan today with my mom. We had planned a trip back in January to visit this weekend since it would be the D-Day anniversary and the Red Sox are in town. My grandfather was so happy when we booked our trip and talked about it often. Unfortunately he didn't make it to see this day but I know he is happy we came anyways and are spending it with Lee. I'll be sure to tell you more about our weekend here when I get back.
I went to DC to visit Rachel and I had the opportunity to see the WWII Memorial for the first time. I was really anxious to see it since I had heard so much about it over the years. To think it took until 2004 to have a memorial to honor the veterans of WWII. . .
So today, on this anniversary of D-Day, take a moment and thank a WWII veteran. If you don't know one then take a moment to silently thank all the sacrifices they made. We will be visiting my grandfather at the National Cemetery and thanking him for all he did.
Linking up with Amanda for Friday Favorites b/c my grandfather was one of my favorite people and this day will always remind me of him and the amazing sacrifices he made for our country!
