Poppa patiently answers his grandson’s questions about war. Lying about his age, Poppa had joined the war when he was 17. Using similes of animals, Poppa explains he was proud as a peacock in his uniform, busy as a beaver crossing the Atlantic, and brave as a lion when going to battle. As they attend a memorial service for veterans, the narrator asks Poppa why he is crying. Poppa replies that war is something you never forget.
