My son never had the chance to meet my dad but I will tell him your grandpa was a World War II veteran who stormed the same beach in Normandy as the movie saving private Ryan and earned many medals including the Purple Heart. I may just be an artist but it was soldiers like that who fought for our freedoms to choose what I want to be. I am forever grateful because I don't know what else I could ever do. Thank you to all who have served in the armed forces and especially to those who did not return. Your sacrifice is appreciated beyond words. Thank you.
