#wwiimaychallenge My favorite resource for WWII things, was my grandfather Poppy. He would tell me stories, give books, and show me his medals and dog tags. During the war, he served in the Joint Assault Signal Corp (JASCO) - a combination army/navy unit that directed naval gunfire during the Pacific Campaign. As a Sergeant, he led his team into frontal landings in Leyte, Luzon, Okinawa and New Zealand and was decorated with the Bronze Star medal for meritorious service. He was truly an amazing and accomplished son, father, and grandfather. I’m lucky to have his ashes with me everywhere I go. I love you Poppy.
