To Daniel R. Carter Dear Daniel, It was nice to read your post, expressing your feelings about the WW II Veterans.My late husband was one of them, and I also, failed to get information from him that would have helped me with tracing his records during that war.
SO I ALWAYS SAY TO ANYONE WHO STILL HAS A LIVING VETERAN OF WW II, PLEASE DON'T LET THE INFORMATION THEY CAN SHARE, DIE WITH THEM.IT IS SO IMPORTANT !
If I had only realized the importance, I could have pinned my husband down, and asked questions, or even have had him record onto an audio cassette.Then I could have transcribed it for his family.He was never very well, after the war, and I had to work to help raise our 3 children, so never seemed to have time to even think about things like that, until I retired, after his death. I've searched the internet, and have found some information, but it would so much easier to have an eyewitness to all those events, who could tell about them. Well, I'll get off my soapbox, but hope that others will listen to what I've said.Dorothy Newman from CA
