Opinion: Thank you for article on World War II veteran Joe Petrucci

The article in the Sierra Sun on March 30, “No average Joe,” by Kaleb M. Roedel regarding the experiences of World War II veteran Joe Petrucci was truly inspiring.

What this American soldier experienced in 1944 during the Invasion of Normandy, along with the recounting of some of the horrific scenarios that took place during that time, serves as a reminder of what was endured and ultimately accomplished.

How we choose to live our lives on a daily basis is one way we can honor what Mr. Petrucci and the thousands upon thousands of other heroes sacrificed.

Thank you for your insightful writing, Kaleb, and thank you for your service, Joe Petrucci.
