My veteran grandpa was asked by a little girl if he would do it all again. He said, “Yes, for you.”(r/pics)
A bit of context: my grandpa served in the Canadian military in WW2 and was stationed in Hong Kong where he was captured on Christmas Day 1941. He was held as a POW until he was rescued by American soldiers at the end of the war. He witnessed several friends die, suffered physical illness, and almost died from being transported in a hell ship to a Japanese camp. His story was written about by my cousin in the book “Forgiveness: A Gift from my Grandparents”.
Edit: I found a short piece written by my grandpa with a bit more detail if you’re interested here. I am not trying to sell a book, I just want his story shared and his legacy remembered. If you have a relative who is a veteran, get in contact with a local veterans’ group (like the Hong Kong Veteran’s Commemorative Association) and see how you can help them.
Edit 2: In response to those who are saying that this is fake or staged, my grandpa gets asked this question often when he goes into schools. The teachers usually have their kids think up a question or two for a Q&A session. He always answers this question like this.
