Here’s your Bro News for today:
As you’ll notice a bit different today. To we honour the courageous Men and Women that served our country so we can be able to have the freedom to do the things we are able to every day.
We thank them for their service.
Today I remember my Grandfather Archie Ball who served in WWII. He was a airplane mechanic. He only spoke of his time in the war once to me. My father and I sat there in awe when he actually did speak of it. Sadly, we lost Archie more than a decade ago. I’m thinking of him today and thank him for his service so I can play radio for a living. I miss you Archie.
