Today, on this Memorial Day, I want to recognize a very dear person to my heart that is no longer with us, my grandfather Cory Bardwell. He was a proud U.S. Veteran and my mentor.
Cory was the last generation of Bardwell Farm, he was also my teacher, my mentor, and best friend in farming. On days like this my grandfather was a man who took a moment out of his day to stop and thank someone for their service.
From 1944 to 1946 he served in the Navy on the Seventh Amphibious Fleet of the USS Cleburne APA-73 Attack Transport Ship in the Pacific Theater.
My Grandfather was a leader with a great heart and soul. He’s done so much good in this world and inspired me to pursue agriculture. He taught me how to plant seeds in the soil and nurture them to maturity. He gives me strength to never give up and always keep trying in everything I do. I love him and miss him dearly.
From all of us here at Bardwell farm, thank you to those who are serving this great country and those who have passed.
