Then when the big day came “Uncle Sam” and grandma as “Aunt Samantha” would participate in parades and events in the community, handing out flags and encouraging people to register to vote and participate civically. He was a proud patriot and we enjoyed seeing him happily waving to the crowds – and grandma was just...
