    • Fab Four,
      Dad always said he was proud of me, but Lord only knows why! 😕 I could list hundreds of reasons why I was proud of him, and not just his service.
      Thank you for dropping by.
      I wish you all a terrific weekend as weekend as well!
      GP😊

  4. It’s wonderful these stories are being collected. When I found a slight mention of my uncle in a WWII story, I was pleased, I am sure it made your heart proud to have your dad honored.

    • I feel as though I managed to make him somewhat immortal. Hopefully wonderful books like this will never end up on the banned books list, as so many classics have already.

  9. Years ago Reader’s Digest put out of couple of books of true short stories from WW2. They were a great read. They didn’t glorify things, but there was definitely accounts of true Heroism and what many of these guys went through.
