I don’t know if everyone saw this but I wanted to share it because I know it meant so much to Taylor.  After completing the interview, he went on and on about how cool it was to Skype into a Veterans Day Assembly with his Korean War Vet grandpa Sid Morris.  He recapped on how crazy it was to see pictures side-by-side of Sid when he was 20’s serving for the United States of America  and Taylor when he was 20’s serving for the United States of America.  It’s an incredible bond that they will forever share.


I’m not going to lie I got choked up when Sid finished the ceremony with saying how even though Taylor is his grandson he is his hero!
