He is my 88 year old neighbor. He is a WWII hero. And when I say hero, I mean hero. He lost most of his platoon on D-Day, he was in a ditch for 300+ days in the bitter cold most of that time. If you ask him, He will tell you, "I'm no hero!" He is as proud to be an American as they come. He is a huge influence in our community, going to all Veteran activities. He helps his neighbors, friends and family by watching out for their houses, shoveling their walks, mowing their lawn. The list could go on and on! Now as his health is starting to fail my family has taken over his friendly duties of shoveling and mowing. It is the least that we can do! For he is a HERO to me and my family.
