My Father In Law was the real deal

He served in the infantry in France. He never really spoke about his experiences, not directly.

I recently had the honor or organizing his army records.  The letter below was dated 30 December 1944.  It describes his actions that earned hes first Bronze Star

Which is a worse memory? Watching your buddy get blown to bits, or killing the man who just did it?

When can we stop asking that question?

  1. That's a very important question and a blog post that will stay with me.

  2. Your FIL was a very special man,
    and I am so happy that I had a

    all be so proud of him.

  3. There is nothing worst than seeing your buddy being blow into bits and pieces.


You do not have to be nice!

This is not me

This is not me
