We’re big fans of the Redsox. But we’re even bigger fans of my grandfather.
A few weeks ago, he was honored for his service in front of 40,000 fans at Fenway Park. Of course, we flew up to Boston for the occasion and got to spend a long weekend with my family.
Seeing my 94-year old grandfather wave to the thousands of people from the field was one of the most awesome moments of my life. He sacrificed so much - for our country and for our family. I loved being able to witness other people seeing what an incredible man he is…an ex-POW that has a purple heart medal in his living room and happens to be the best grandfather of all time.
When he went back to his seat, the crowds stood and cheered, “USA! USA!” People took photos with him afterward and thanked him for his service. I couldn’t have kept my eyes dry if I tried.
I wanted to share a few photos from that very special day - you can watch the videos below if you’d like too! Just beware, waterworks may or may not come forth upon viewing.
