Jake's Gift

Page history last edited by Heather Durnin 9 years, 5 months ago

When I was in university, I worked one summer for a dairy farmer, Mr. Milo Morgan, milking cows.  He'd taken a break from his beloved cows, during his years as a bomber pilot in WWII.  Although he never told me this, I knew he had an office filled with pictures, medals and memorabilia collected during his time spent in the war.  I never got to set foot in his office, and only got a brief glimpse one day at the top of the stairs of the old farmhouse he lived in.  One day I asked him to tell me about his experiences in the war.  Milo refused.

 

At the time, I respected his silence.  I still do.  But I would now like to have the chance to talk to him again about the importance of sharing his experiences.  Unfortunately, I never will.  Milo died a few years ago.  

 

Why is it so important that veterans share their stories with us, no matter how difficult it is for them?  

What does it teach us?
