Hello everyone, I hope you had a great weekend! When I was out and about today I happened to catch some of the Veteran's Day Parade here in NYC and of course it made me think about the people in my life who have served our country. My Great Grandpa served in the navy in World War II. His name was William but everyone just called him Popcorn. It was his favorite snack and he also had a lot of energy and jumped around like a piece of popcorn in a popper. Grandpa Popcorn had a way about getting himself in the middle of things and was unknowingly part of a very famous event. I know everyone knows this photo:
But here's what that iconic photo looks like from a slightly different angle:
Yep, that's Grandpa Popcorn. Legend has it that he was a little upset at the guy in the photo because he'd had his eye on the nurse himself but he didn't make his move fast enough! Here's a little better look at Grandpa Popcorn:
Quite the handsome devil, don't you think? Thank you Grandpa Popcorn and thanks everyone else for your service. Happy Veteran's Day everyone!
