Today we laid to rest one of the most important men in my life, one of the few remaining Korean War veterans, my Uncle, a father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend to many who were fortunate to cross paths in his lifetime. He was my dad's older brother, someone who I remember fondly and by far the closest uncle I had throughout my lifetime.
I have countless memories of Uncle Glenn. Today will be one of those memories that I'll forever tuck away. In fact, today will be one of the most profound, albeit sad, memories as we laid to rest an amazing man, role model, cherished and respected family member, and Korean War veteran on this most appropriate day - Veteran's Day.
