A very important veteran in my life was my Great Grandpa Max. Grandpa Max served in the Army as a mechanic during World War II. He fixed things like tanks, cars and guns. He maintained the equipent so other soldiers would be able to use them. Without max and other mechanics, soldiers wouldn’t always have equipment that worked properly. This is essential to winning any war and his work helped with this.
Grandpa Max fought in some major battles in Europe. H landed on Omaha Beach a few days after D-Day and participated in the Battle of the Bulge. During these experiences, he saw some very tragic things. Max would never speak of these things. He was a young man when this all happened and even after the war this all stuck with him and he wouldn’t even talk about it with his family. He did this so he wouldn’t have to relive these things and so that he could protect us from these terrible memories.
