“This painting of my grandfather is a historic reflection of a patriot who, in decades past, proudly went to battle. The memories of serving his country honorably years ago in Korea, along with many other patriots, have faded. My parents told me how he served proudly, as did his father in World War II. What I know most about my grandfather is the love, honor and commitment that he has demonstrated his entire life. As my grandfather prepares to travel with my brother this summer on his Honor Flight to Washington, D.C., along with many other brave veterans, my family and I will reflect on his patriotism, loyalty and devotion. While specific memories serving in Korea have faded, some things have not, including his love and honor of country, family and God. As civilians, we should remember and respect the sacrifices made by our nation’s heroes.” – Kayla Juds
