Brilliant and emotional piece, Kale. I was in the military during Nam and became a peacenik afterwards, a mostly passive peacenik, a hippy I guess until I needed to cut my hair for a decent job. I never heard of Junior but I would have been proud of him back then. Today I’m a staunch conservative who spends part of every day arguing with the hippy who still lives within. Reading your article today, I am still very proud of your grandpa. Thanks for introducing him to the rest of us. He was a beautiful human.
