I wrote the second one first and couldn't figure out how to say this one. Only because how do you follow it with: My Dad. He was a Soldier First. Former Drill Sarget of the Year. He fought in the First Gulf War. And was in West Germany during the 80s when the Korean Airliner was shot down. He never blinked and never let his family know there was a problem. Being 3 at the time this was huge. He taught me how to play Risk at the age of 5. 27 years later I still haven't won a game yet. He started me on board gaming and war gaming. And my interest in WW2 started as something to talk to my father about. Now there's not a day that goes by I don't read, google or question something about the war.
Hersey C. Quinn Sr. of the 637th ordinance company. He landed on Omaha beach in the 2nd wave of troops on D-day. They supplied ammo to the 29th infantry division. And was with the 29th during the capture of St. Lo. He was a Buffalo Soldier and fought a miserable war against a Racist Dictator to return home to a racist home country. He never complained about it and choise to raise above.
Sounds like a couple of great dedications to me.
I'll second that.
