Hi Jessica, welcome and thank you for joining us.

I will be adding your grandfather to our 'Hall of Heroes Registry' this weekend. We also have a corresponding photo album, of which, I can add any WWII-era photos of your father. In order to do this, upload those photos to your 'My Photos' app. on your profile. I can then aggregate those to our "Family Members" photo albums.

Just something that we offer if you are interested. Let me know if you have any questions!  Scott Lyons
