Family Blood

My name is Michael Wayne Bergquist II. I am the grandson of Wayne Bergquist and son of Michael Wayne Bergquist I. I never knew Wayne, because he died when my father was my current age now, 15 years old. We had a Veterans Day assembly today at school and he was the first name mentioned there. My cousins Connor and Hannah Bergquist were also there. It felt good hearing that our bloodline has contributed to the greatness of this country, and for that, I salute you, grandfather! Thank you for your service for this country! I can thank you and all other veterans who have and are currently serving for the freedom I live in everyday! God bless you!
