Old Fella

I wish I’d asked to take a picture with him.

I met an old fella today who needed a bit of help putting some dog food in him and his wife’s cart.

He had on a veterans cap and we got to talking. He’s from Cheraw and I’m from Kershaw, about an hour apart.

He was talking about being a Combat Engineer (as was I) and about fellas he served with that were from Kershaw.

Turns out he served with my grandfather and knows my father.

It was a pretty special chance meeting.

TL/DR I met a brother today.

That’s it. That’s the post.
