Robin put on her sunglasses as they headed toward the park across the street. "Ready for the
official tour now?" she asked.
"Whenever you're ready."
"This is Veterans Memorial Park. My Grandpa John Chaplin's name is on the World War II
memorial wall here. He was in the Army and was wounded in Europe. I think it was in France.
After he recuperated, he worked in intelligence at the Pentagon in Washington D.C. until the war
ended. He worked on codes and communications."
"Sounds like a smart man."
"He was. He was intelligent, clever, compassionate, and kind. I was blessed to have him as
my grandfather. His name is also shown on the Korean War memorial wall over here."
They walked further into the park to see the Korean War wall.
"He served in both wars?" Jeff asked.
"Yes. In the Korean War he was stationed in South Korea and saw some combat.
Fortunately, he wasn't wounded in that conflict," Robin said with a slight smile.
"I'm in awe of anyone who saw combat in not only one, but two wars!" Jeff replied.
"It's pretty amazing, isn't it?" she asked.
"Definitely amazing. Maybe more like astonishing since I don't come from a military family.
Is this all right?" Jeff gestured to a bench engulfed with shade.
"Yes, it's nice and cool here."
They both sat down and then Jeff handed Robin her ice-cold smoothie. She slid the straw
through the lid and took her first sip.
"You're welcome. Tell me more about your family." Jeff sat back with his legs stretched in
front of him and began sipping his smoothie through his straw.
"My grandparents raised me from the time I was fourteen. My mother died of colon cancer
after a lengthy battle. My dad was an emotional wreck after she died. We appeared on his
parents' doorstep in Bonita Creek one July afternoon about three months after Mom's death. He
asked his parents to look after me while he tried to 'find himself.'
