Natasha Maxin, 17, is entering San Jose State this fall and is starting to appreciate the historical contribution of her great-grandfather, who flew over Europe as a B-17 turret gunner. Jenn Flores, 30, got involved because she wanted her 7-year-old son, Leo, to appreciate his elders and follow their example of compassion and respect.
