courage

Thanks to my Great Uncle Norman, who lied about his age to join the Army, and at the tender age of 17 was assigned to the 28th Infantry, Pennsylvania National Guard, and sent to the Huertgen forest. He survived hopeless odds; His unit had a 110% casualty rate, and in 2 months of fighting in Huertgen, the U.S. Losses were a little over 33,000 dead  (That’s almost as many as we lost during the entire Vietnam war).
