My grandfather is a real hero.
In 2015 Russia celebrates the 70
anniversary of the Great Victory. Today I want
to tell about my grandfather who did all possible to bring this victory to our
country. During the Great Patriotic War my grandfather was an officer of the
Soviet Army. He took part in many heroic battles and reached Berlin. On May 9,
1945 the war was over. Everybody was happy. It was the Greatest Victory of the
soviet people. “Let’s make the 9
of May our meeting day” said the soldiers and
the officers. “Let’s meet every year in Moscow on Red Square”. And so they do
now. It has become a tradition to all of them.
Once, my grandfather took me to Moscow on the Victory Day. I was very happy.
First of all we watched the Parade, it looked great. Then we went to the Tomb of
the Unknown Soldier. A lot of people wanted to honor the memory of those who
died, defending peace and happiness of our Motherland. So, we took place at the
end of a long line and walked slowly to the memorial. We moved along the alley
and saw blocks of red stone with soil from “Hero Cities”. People brought a lot of
flowers to the memorial. We honored the memory of the heroes with a minute of
silence. We also watched the change of the guard, saw the Eternal Flame, burning
at the monument, read great and simple words: “Your name is unknown, your deed
is immortal.” My grandfather met his friends and they remembered the hard days
of the war. I listened to their stories with great interest. In the evening we watched
a beautiful salute. What a wonderful day it was!
Next year I invited my grandfather and one of his friends to our school. My
classmates greeted the veterans with flowers. They told us about heroic battles and
about the Victory Parade which took place on June, 24, 1945. Moscow welcomed
the heroes. They told and there were tears in the eyes of the veterans and my
I also want to say, we should always remember the heroic deeds of our
grandfathers and great-grandfathers. We must be thankful to those who gave lives
for peace on the Earth and do our best to keep this peace.
