Wow! Happy Birthday Uncle Bob! And thank you so much for serving this country!
Thats awesome. Happy Birthday to Your Uncl Bob a hero, veteran and A Awesome inspiring person
thanks to you all, they really were/are hero’s to me, their dad died when my dad was 8 and my Uncle bob was 10 of pneumonia (no penicillin yet) my grandmother tried to raise them (4 children) but it was the great depression after WWI, and after 2 years realized she couldn’t support them so she took them to a christian orphanage so they would have food, clothing and a roof over their head, not to be adopted out tho. And she took them out every other weekend. They stayed in the orphanage until they were 17 and then went into the military during WWII, my uncle Bob in the Army and my dad in the Air Force (was the Army/Air Corps at the Time). It made them strong and family important.
Happy Birthday Uncle Bob!
What a precious story. Was a very difficult decision for their mother though.
When I worked in VA nursing home for a couple of years we had a WWI veteran who was 108 I think. He was a hoot!
gotta love those long life genes!
Happy Birthday to Uncle Bob!! 100 is such a milestone! Triple digits!
@LDSVenus Your story of them having to live in an orphanage is a little heartbreaking, but at least they still could see their grandmother some. And they had food and were taken care of
