We honor and remember the many soldiers who have risked their lives fighting for our freedom, as well as those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

According to a graph on the National World War II Museum's website, about 555 WWII Veterans die each day. There are just over 1 million WWII Veterans still living today.

My father Albert who’s 91 served in the Navy along with 343 sailors on the U.S.S Ronquil. He is one of three left and goes to their reunion every year.

Do you have any living relatives who served during World War II? If it were not for them and who who have served afterwards and continue, we would not have what we have today. Feel free to give them a shoutout in the space below.
