5 of 5 My Grandad! November 8, 2021
Reviewer: Reeve Howard from [email protected]  
I had no idea, until today.
I learned many years ago that my grandad on my mothers side was part of the OSS, in part because he spoke french.

Thank you so much.

I feel a little guilty because I took the officer candidate for the navy, but passed to follow the Grateful Dead and now I'm a comic.

Thank you for all you do.
