A Letter to Two Veterans

Dear My Two Papas,

I think that I’m very lucky that you both survived the war, and that you are such wonderful people. I know how much you love me because you tell me and show me, and that makes me feel lucky. You are incredibly kind and I feel lucky to have kind survivors as grandfathers. My Mama’s grandpa came back from war as a mean person. We are all lucky to not have you like that.

I’m glad that my Daddy never went to war. But I’m more [much               more] that you came back.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   -Sincerely Anna

My Papa, Gene Swan in his Air Force uniform.

This is my Papa, my Mama’s Daddy. He’s the tall one.

 

This is my Papa, my Daddy's Daddy. Here he is getting a Purple Heart, which is a medal.

PS: Writing a letter to a veteran is a fourth-grade homework assignment we got this week. You can read another letter here from a girl I know named Piper.
