Remembrance Day

Hatbadge
My father's hat badge

Basic
My father fresh out of basic training. He lied about his age to go fight. He's 15 in this photo. Think about it... what were you doing when you were 15?

My dad with his tank. These are in Italy. He's 16 or 17 in these.

His crewmates from the tank. The text at the top reads "Open Air Phil Scott. Killed Dec 1943".

The text reads "[Troop] 6. Wiped out Aug 19, 1942. Dieppe."

Wow
That was really powerful. Gosh, when I was fifteen I had just grown out of Barbies and was excited because my mom let me dye my hair black for the first time. I couldn't fathom, even now, going to war, killing people and see people I know die around me. Thank God for the brave young men who went to war to protect us all.

What a different world it was... instead of dating, Hillary Duff and Playstation portable - he was fighting Fascists..
