"In WW II, my dad flew troop carriers in the Army Air Force in France. His twin brother flew in the Navy. My mother's only sibling, Uncle Johnny, and one of her first cousins, another Johnny, were killed in WWII. Both my grandfathers fought in WWI. I am deeply proud of their service and profoundly grateful for the freedoms that service has allowed us to exercise. My dad joined the Army Air Force when he was 19, after marrying my mom when they were both 18. I have in my heart's eye the image of my father…an old man, leaning on a cane, looking for the bakery, in the French village where he an his buddies spent a few nights. He never found it, but his memories were so strong I could feel them, emanating from him like a heatwave. Today, I'm taking time to imagine myself in my young dad's shoes…falling onto a cot, above the bakery, his dreams, if he had any, filled with a mix of airplane fuel and fresh croissants. #worldwar2 #worldwar1 #worldwarii #worldwariimemorial #armyaircorpshistoricaircraftflight #fallenwarriors @usarmy @usnavy #peace #weloveblackwarheros #warheros" –Glenn Close, who shared this touching tribute to her father on Instagram on May 27
