Two men went to The Great War, never to return home, each leaving behind a woman and her son. Those hard working women would make ends meet by joining together under one household, raising their sons as brothers. My husband’s grandfather and great uncle formed boyhood bonds together that would carry and influence life’s choices till their last days, each spending their final years just miles apart in Monterey County. I cannot imagine growing up without a daddy. However, I suppose where one bond is broken, another can be forged. Had those two fallen soldiers not made babies before leaving to war, my husband and my babies would not be here. Remembering our fallen soldiers, their families, and all who pick up the broken pieces to forge ahead.
