IT HAD A VERY BIG IMPACT ON ME AS A KID

My grandpa was Charles Cole and he served in WW1. I believe he was with the 24th MI.

Uncle Phil Oconnel served in the ETO in WWII and another uncle who served with the Sea Bee’s in the Pacific during WWII. His name was Douglas Cole.

My cousin Randy Oconnel served in the Vietnam Era. I’m pretty proud of all of them as they told me their stories of the things they did and the things that they saw. It had a very big impact on me as a young kid. I miss them very much.

I was never able to serve due to health issues. But our Veterans hold a special place in my heart. I have read all their history and know the cost of freedom they have paid for our great country! I enjoy the posted Veteran stories on Comes A Soldier’s Whisper veteran tribute page https://www.facebook.com/ComesASoldiersWhisper/ and share them with my friends.

God bless YOU and OUR GREAT COUNTRY.

Keep up the good work!
