Monke: Fighting for the medals grandpa earned
Ask anyone who knows me well and they'll tell you that if I wouldn't have pursued a career in journalism, I would most likely have gravitated toward the subject of history -- particularly, 20th century America. I'm absolutely fascinated by stories of the Great Depression, World War...
