|Hayden Furrow, D-Day Veteran,|
during a school program at the
National D-Day Memorial
What better day to share one of my favorite love stories than Valentine’s Day? I’ve always been a sucker for a good love story whether it’s a book, movie, TV show, or real life. I guess you can say that I am a bit of a romantic, even though it is hard to see unless you get me on the topic. Well today, I want to share a video about one of our volunteers, who is also a D-Day veteran, on his 70th wedding anniversary which occurred just a few days ago. Hayden Furrow is one of the sweetest men you will ever meet and his enthusiasm for sharing his story with the next generation endears him to me as an educator—it’s an experience that our school visitors will never forget. But every time I see him and he mentions his wife, Katie, he lights up like he’s back in his youth and you can tell how deeply he cares for her. Recently, a local TV station aired an interview of the Furrows on their milestone wedding anniversary, as seen at this link. I hope you enjoy the video as much as I did and that their story is a reminder of the good things that life can bring.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
