(Relatively) Youthful Insensitivity?

A while back I was at a family party talking to my Great-uncle Hank. Hank was on the pointy end of the spear when the Allies were pushing into Germany back in 1945. He has at least one Purple Heart. He said that he was one of the first men across the bridge over the Rhine at Remagen. I said, "I played that on a video game."

Wow - we have some brave genes. I heard a lot of Grandpa's stories, but haven't heard any of Uncle Hank's. He is a really cool guy, I miss seeing him twice a year.
