You! Be Inspired! – World War II Illustrations by Weston Emmart

by . May 28th, 2013

Most of us have a memory to treasure about our grandparents. It can be in a form of crazy stories or humble life lessons that best describe their life well spent. Redditor¬†MightyTanaka, remembered his grandfather Weston Emmart, a World War II veteran through a series of illustrations done during the war and sent back to his family. His grandson shared the images via Imgur and became viral just in time for yesterday’s US Memorial Day.

Drawn as cartoons in an old sketchbook, the illustrations depict the life and adventures of an American soldier during the war. The humor and some side notes on every page by the late war veteran in the whole collection made these drawings a piece of treasure for the family. Take a look at some of the drawings below:
