How can you tell when you've done something really fucking amazing?

They make you into an action figure.

Sixty-two years ago, Lt. Bill Nielsen of the 82nd Airborne dropped into France with the rest of his men and, for him, it was the start of WWII. It wouldn't end until VE Day.

Bill Nielsen was Jenny's father.

Thanks for what you did in the war, Bill, and thanks for Jenny, a great woman I am honored to call my wife.

In fact, I think someone should make Jenny into an action figure. Putting up with me for 26 years is nothing short of heroic.
