My Grandpa

Good Essays
My Hero Their are a lot of heroes out there some fake like Superman, Batman, and all the other we sometimes wish we could be, then there are the real heroes like firemen, policemen, and our troops who put their life on the line every day. One of my heroes happens to be my Grandpa, He served in the Korean War, he was the first person in his family to attend college, and he always puts his family first. My Grandpa fought in the Korean War when he was about 20 years old , he was there for almost 2 years but he was able to come home early because he was always fighting in the front lines or very close to it so he could come home early. When he wasn't fighting he would be making communication lines instead. He also received a bronze star while he was there for saving someone's life, he has never told the actual story of what happened just that he saved a life. He was also the first person in his family to attend college, he attended the University of Utah to become a Engineer. He had to put his education on hold because of the Korean war, Which wasn't such a bad thing considering he was paying for college all on his own, his family was very poor growing up. When he returned he was determined to finish college when he returned home and he did, which I think is pretty amazing he was so determined to do that when he was the first person in his family to do so. My Grandpa always puts his family first and loves his family so much and that it is one of his favorite things to do. One way I know he does and that really touches me is because of my brother Dax, He has cerebral palsy so he can't walk or talk are do things like that as well as not having complete control of his muscles and can be a pain to watch sometimes. but my Grandpa is always willing to watch him and he loves it and so does my brother, my brother always gets a huge smile on his face when he sees him and just seems to have the best time with him . that's how he is with everyone in our family always

    the words noble, courageous, selflessness, and caring appeared across my ipad. Instantly I thought of my grandpa. I've always called my grandpa “Papa” since before I can remember. Papa was the most genuine, kind-hearted person I've ever known. He always put everyone before himself and did everything he could to better everyone else's life. My grandparents had 5 kids, when my grandma decided to move to Florida from Boston, my grandpa knew he needed to stay at the job he was at to support his family.…

    A chilly breeze struck my face as I lower the window of the car, a 2010 Dodge, rushing passed buildings while leaves begin to fall off the trees. Mom and I were passing the local cemetery on our way to the store and I think of him. Without a warning, tears slowly make their way down the sides of my face and it takes me back to the Winter of 2010 when I knew, knew that he would be taking his very last breath. My Grandpa, beloved and cherished, has just passed. Balling her eyes out, Mom falls to the…

    My Grandpa Leon is possibly the most negative person I know. Even though I love him, we are different from one another in almost every way. I am calm, organized, and quiet; my grandpa is boisterous, loud, and chaotic, with difficulty focusing and controlling his emotions. I prefer to live more simply and modestly; he loves to spend money on grand yet unnecessary things. We are both intelligent, but in different ways: I love learning about people, but he has been a bus mechanic his whole life, with…

    My Grandpa, My Inspiration “Oh hi kiddo!” my grandpa said in disbelief as I walked in my grandparents’ house. My grandpa was in utter shock to see me as he put his glasses on just to make sure it was actually me he was seeing through his weak and glassy eyes. He shot up from the couch and swiftly grabbed his walker. He came over to me and just giving him a hug, I felt like I had to be careful because he seemed so fragile. “Betty!” my grandpa yelled in a slightly crackled voice as he…
