Thinking of Dad on Veteran’s Day

My Dad,?Eli Grossman, ?was drafted in 1942 for World War II.?? Because the government paid his tuition for dental school, he was called up again as a dentist for Korea in 1950.??Dad gave generously to charities for wounded veterans, widows, and orphans?but never joined veteran?s? organizations. One day, I asked him why.?? He told me, ?They all want more government money for men like me.??? But the men who deserve it are dead or in hospitals.??? The rest of us were lucky.?? We didn?t get hurt.? We didn?t get killed.? Most of us weren?t heroes.? We just did what had to do to live in a free country.??? We have a free country and that is enough for me?.??
