Bobby Taylor

This is my grandfather, father of my mother. I never really got to know him because he died when I was three years old. However, growing up I have heard much about him and have taken an interest into him. He served greatly for our country and was a good husband to my grandmother. He was in the army and fought in the Vietnam War.
