I was going to continue this story on a Ketchup topic, however I thought it may have been considered a hijacking.
Since I failed to list this story on Dec. 7th I thought maybe here would be a better place instead of the
Tomato Ketchup thread.

Every Dec 7th I think about an episode with my uncle Jack Francis from the Scranton area in Pennsylvania.
I do not remember exactly how old I was when this happened but it was before the Normandy invasion.
My uncle Jack was killed during that event.
I was visiting uncle Jack's house which was located in a Scranton (Avoka?)  suburb...
I was climbing an old apple tree in the yard at his home, playing around with a rope wondering how it would feel to be dangling in a tree on a rope..(child's thoughts) who knows what could have happened????
Uncle Jack came walking up the path proud as a peacock in his army uniform, with a smile on his face that never went away, I remember uncle Jack placing me on his shoulder carrying me back to the safety of his home..
I never saw uncle Jack again after that visit because he gave his life during the Normandy invasion..   Never have I forgot the wonderful feeling I had when I was around him, even tho many many years have passed.


I am sure there have been many men like uncle jack who gave their lives for the liberties we now enjoy..may God have blessed them all

Thank you. That was a blessing and very powerful emotionally to hear. Freedom is not free. Thank you Jack for serving and the sacrifice. Thank you Jimmy Cee for sharing.
