My grandfather didnt die in Korea, but the agent orange took his life years later when I was in 3rd grade. My other grandfather whom I never met died from kidney issues caused by radiation. He was stationed in NM where they were testing nuclear weapons. I also just lost my uncle 2 weeks ago. He was an army colonel in the special forces. He's the one that got me into guns.

My uncle Obie got me into guns, whether he knew it or not. B-17 bomber over Germany. I was proudly one of his pallbearers years after he survived.
Grandfather was a WW1 veteran.
He attended the Meuse-Argonne party.
Never talked about it much.
My uncle neither. Didn't need to.

The nine on the left were crew. Buddies, a former boss and one of my former students.
SSgt Snowden’s funeral started in Dallas and we drove about 45 minutes to a military cemetery. On a Friday afternoon about 3pm they shut down parts of I20 so we in the procession could all travel together. To see three lanes stopped so we could enter the Interstate was pretty amazing. All on ramps were blocked for us, we were just over two miles in length.
