War Museum

 My favourite war veteran, (Grandpa) took Cole and I on a tour of the war museum.

Very Cool.







Grandpa rode in one of these ambulances after he was wounded in Germany.

Lest We Forget


Today I want to remember my Grandpa, John Preece.  He is 86 and is a World War II veteran  He fought as a rifleman with the Royal Regiment of Canada and was wounded on April 2nd, 1945, just over the Rhine.  

I am grateful that because of his courage and selflessness, I live in freedom.

God Bless you, Grandpa.
