Giving Thanks to two Grandfathers Today

To the Grandfather I never knew...the one who was busted down twice from corporal for insubordination at Ypres and Vimy...the one they say I am most like:
Thank you.

To my other Grandfather...the Italian one who served in the Canadian Army in WW1, a new immigrant to Canada and immediately sent back to war-ravaged Europe:
Thank you.

Both died as a result of lung damage from mustard gas, years later.

Both are remembered with love and reverence, today and always.
