Overview

"My Grandpa's War" is a touching story about the special relationship between a 9-year-old girl and her grandfather, a veteran of the Vietnam
War.
A lingering war injury has put her grandpa in the hospital prompting her to tell his tale. Although her name is
Mae, her grandpa calls her 'Sarge' in honor of a close friend he served with in Vietnam.
Told through the insight of a child, "My
Grandpa's War" deals with a difficult time in our nation's history; however,
it does so in a positive and healing way.
'Sarge' and her grandpa make a special trip to Washington, D.C. and she is given an even deeper understanding of friendship, sacrifice and dedication to one's country.
At the end of the story, Grandpa receives a very unexpected and meaningful gift and learns that his young granddaughter was right when she said:
"Sometimes something good can come from something bad."
