Saving the Legacy: Fred Donkin Jr.
My mom and I have been working on this life story book for my Grandpa. He served in the Navy in WWII. The University of Utah has been going to interview the vets to collect their life histories and to preserve the war stories. For the last 26 years, I've never really known my Grandpa. Doing this book for him has inspired me greatly! I would sit up at night reading about him and his accomplishments, I couldn't get enough of it. I had to read more and more. We had a lot of photos, but wanted more so we would google images and see what we could find. We found pictures of the ships he was on and crew members, etc. It was such an amazing experience! I can't wait to finish the one that we have started for my Grandma. I'm so excited about this book! Check it out at the bottom of my blogs!
