    I’m blessed to have known both of my grandfathers well and spent a significant amount of time with them in their later years. They truly were the greatest generation.

    I’m 34, but I don’t have much in common with most my age. A bunch of wussies if you ask me. There are some good ones, and I strive to be one of them. God, Family, Country. In that order.

    I hear you on that. Can’t tell you how many times people have told me that I have an “old soul” and or was born in the wrong generation.

    Been told that, too. Even better, my youngest is going to be 15 in three weeks but like his father, is truly a old soul, too!
