I feel bad for missing the service downtown, especially after the cenotaph was partially destroyed. So along with my two minutes, I’m sharing this song. This particular version is done by the Dropkick Murphys. The song has some very heavy lyrics at times. I listen to it when I want to remember.
The last WWII veteran that I personally knew died two years ago. He never spoke about the war. Today I’m remembering Robert Brownrick, who survived the war, but lost his ankle to a near by grenade.
