Geoff's parents were visiting Geoff's grandparents before they came to Bear Lake. During their visit, Geoff's grandpa Ed, gave them his duffel bag from WWII. He said he hadn't opened it since the war and thought maybe the grandkids would like to see it. They brought it and one of the nights at Bear Lake, we opened it. He was a paratrooper and in his bag were all of his clothes, a Brownie camera, binoculars, some Nazi paraphernalia, hats and helmets among other things. It was amazing to all of us, young and old alike to handle such old and special items.
