Shaking Hands With History
"Do you know who he is?" I exclaimed to the young couple while rekeying their new home recently. Pointing to the old campaign flyer they unearthed from their attic, I explained it was a local D-Day hero, Jack Hamlin.
Jonathan and I had the privilege of meeting Mr. Hamlin during an Honor Flight of the Ozarks "Welcome Home" event at the airport. (If you haven't attended a Welcome Home yet, you're truly missing out!)
You can learn more about Jack's story with a simple Google search.
I was tickled to have my son meet him, as he got to see with his eyes and shake the hand of the "greatest" generation.
Jack is 101 now & has made yet another trip back to Normandy recently for the D-Day Anniversary.
