My thanks also go out to every veteran, and every member of our army's still fighting for the preservation of our freedom. Special prayers to both of my grandfathers, and my great uncle Frank Woosnam of the British Royal Navy. He was about 32 when he was in charge of the biggest single non nuclear explosion in the world, at that time, reducing the German submarine base at Heligoland to nothing, as well as the army base. I've always been very proud of my family, who actually did tell me their stories of the wars. My patenal grandfather was in the Battle of the Somme, WW1, and my maternal grandfather was a prisoner of war of the Japanese (WW2)for 3 years. I remember as a little girl showing my friends that my uncle was in the Guiness Book of World records. I wish they were still with me, God rest their souls. Lest we forget.
