My daughter was working for the American Embassy in Australia when she was expecting her first child. I was so happy when she texted me with the news.

I had just become a Second lieutenant in The Marines when my mother and I were walking toward the Iwo Jima monument. We were about to cross the street when a truck was coming toward us. We jumped back out of the way.
