  1. We have a book that my grandfather and other members of his regiment wrote. There are pictures and stories from their time serving in one of the volunteer regiments. I keep meaning to translate it … I really need to get to it. My grandfather would always take us to visit his fellow soldiers on May 9. He died in 1996. I usually deliver care packages to veterans in Chicago around New Year’s in his memory.

    1. That sounds so great. I also have a book that my grandfather wrote about his family that needs to be digitized and also translated. When I think about what the people of their generation went through compared to me, I feel tiny and stupid.

      Where did your grandfather serve?
