December 7, 1941

Today is the 69th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.  Grandpa Joe is a Pearl Harbor survivor and one of the coolest, most rock-solid dudes I know.  He reads every single blog post I write and comments on most of them.  He admits that half the time he has no idea what I'm talking about.  I admit that, half the time, I don't know what his comments are about either.  He always signs comments and emails "Semper. The Grands South  or Elder Grands Walsh...way south". 

As they say, once a Marine, always a Marine.

As the years pass the numbers of Pearl Harbor survivors dwindle and I count myself extremely fortunate to know and love this particular veteran. 

Thanks, Grandpa Joe, for your service to our country.

What a beautiful tribute to your Grandpa Joe, Erin. You are so blessed to have so many grandparents from whom you can still learn so much. (lots of 'so' in that comment, but still)
