Re: What did your Grandfather do for a living?
My grandfather on my dad's side fought in WW2 and was sent to Europe. He was one of the soldiers that liberated either Auschwitz or Dachau. Subsequently, he suffered with emotional problems throughout his life. When he came back to the states, he worked in the supply shop of a steel mill. This was sad because he was apparently a brilliant man who squandered his potential.
My grandfather on my mom's side was born in Poland and was originally a cobbler. He was forced to defect from Poland to Germany where he served in the army. He ended up in the U.S. and became a tool and dye maker. He suffered an injury on the job and was forced into early retirement. He has had it hard in his life, but he always persevered. Now he spends his days playing bingo, spending money, and doing other badass things that he enjoys.
