What he did

My great grandfather has done many things. He has been all the way around the globe. Literally! He was born in McLouth, Kansas. He died at the age 93 in Lawrence, Kansas. He was one of the great American heroes.

Military

Eugene served in the Army in WW2. He traveled to Tunisia, Rhineland, and Sicily! He even served on D-Day! He was supposed to receive some medals, but he kept putting it off. The Purple Heart, Bronze Star, European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal, to name some. His son went and got them and gave it to him. At age 93, he got his medals. Sadly though, he died a week later.
