In 1944, my paternal grandparents received a telegram which read, in part:
“The Navy Department deeply regrets to inform you that your son Russell Brooks was killed while in the service of his country.”
Turns out my uncle was killed by a Kamikaze off the coast of the Philippines during the Battle of Leyte Gulf.
Dad tells me that a visit preceded the telegram. When Grandpa met the military officials at the front door, he asked, “Which one,” as he had two sons serving in WWII.
Indeed, many in the military community deal with loss and grief. As you respond to this thread, feel free to share a personal story to illustrate your points.
