On Monday, the United States observed Memorial Day, a day to honor the men and women of our armed forces who gave their lives in service to our country.
The theme for Week 21 was “Military.” Many of you wrote about ancestors and cousins and uncles who served. They were beautiful tributes.
I’m only going to highlight one post this week. Roberta did such an incredible job of telling the story of Frank and her mother. Through it, we can learn not only about their lives, love, and loss, but reflect upon what our own ancestors struggled with.
Please read Roberta Estes’ essay, “Frank Sadowski (1921-1945), Almost My Father,” on DNAeXplained.
Thank you, Roberta, for sharing their story with us.
