My entry for this week's letter at ABC Wednesday is my Uncle who served during the WW2 and died in Germany. Uncle Paul never made it home and I couldn't even imagine how painful it was for my grandmother to lost a son. Not to mention that she also lost two sons due to a car accident. Two of my Uncles died in a car wreck together. It must be so heartbreaking for my Dad's parents. Below is an old photo of my Dad and his friends during their military services. I couldn't find a picture of my Uncle Paul.
