On May 9th, 1945 a worldwide victory was won for the allies. Remember your veterans, whatever country they may be, and what they have done for you and their families.
Here is my grandfather with all his medals that distinguish him. He is one of the last remaining Russian veterans since he went to war at a tender age of 17, and the life expectancy for that generation is about 56. However, he is still with us today.
Nobody paid quite as heavy a price as the people of the then Soviet Union. Glad to hear your grandfather is still alive!
My sketchbook thread:
My great respect and best wishes to your grandfather!
We had a parade today in St.Petersburg, Moscow and other big cities. I personally don't like such parades. I think the memory of those people has nothing to do with parades, but mostly as a requiem day for lost friends and comrades.
I hope you don't mind if I share a photograph that I really like, taken during one of such days ...
Happy Victory Day!

Russian Academy of Arts thread - all about it
There was a sign on the Academy building, “Free Arts”. “What’s that?”, we asked our professor. – “That’s to be able to create anything, but to create what you want to.”
