Veteran’s Day Salute

On this Veteran’s Day, a salute to my Grandpa Hintz, WW II U.S. Army Combat Infantryman, who taught me how to properly shoot a .22 caliber rifle and took me outdoors as a young boy. Thanks so much, Grandpa Hintz, and to all veterans who have served! My grandpa is fourth from right to left in this old photo.
