Military reminiscing

Jack came to us after several years alone.

All the Nurses had tried getting Jack to open up a little, so they might find him someone he could share some memories with, but he insisted he was fine on his own.

Then one day, one of the Nurse Specialists caught Jack watching another patient, whose son had brought his collection of medals in from home. The Nurse contacted Jack’s daughter and asked if her father had ever been in the military. He had been, and so next time she came to visit, she brought her father’s medals with her.

In no time, the two old soldiers found plenty to reminisce over, and discover they had both been in the same military hospital, sixty-three years earlier.

It’s little connections such as these which matter most.
