My Grandfather was 19 years old when he went to Europe from New Zealand for WWII. He was away from his wife for 6 years, his wife was pregnant when he left so he didn’t meet his first born daughter until she was 6 years old. A letter every few months from prisoner of war camp was the only contact he had with his family. He sacrificed so much for his country and the greater good of freedom. I think of this often when I think that things in my life are difficult and it really puts it in perspective for me.
