A Family Legacy of Service, Courage and Heroism Found in an Old Photograph
My Mom’s Dad, looking pretty badass. He was Polish, so he was fighting for not only the US, but also against the genocide of his own people.
My grandfather’s name was John J. Parsick. He was born in Pennsylvania in 1923 to Polish immigrants.
He served in the European theater and was headed for Japan, but they dropped the bombs.
He met his wife in Pine Bluff, Arkansas after the war and they settled in Baltimore Maryland, where he worked for Glenn L. Martin Company his whole post-war life, right up until retirement.
He passed away on February 8, 2014. ~shared by @anthonymaans
