Jack - Thank you! I am fortunate and I know it and am grateful. Most WW II men that I have run into are about 10 yrs. younger than I. Don was 35 while he was in the Hurtgen Forest Battle.
On that first Armistice my father and mother and smaller brother went in their Model T Ford 20 miles to see the first fire works I ever saw at Camp Grant in Rockford IL. It was dismantled long ago. Mary
