Thank you so much for this information. I wish I could have provided more info to you. Some things he said were confusing to me. He said he felt the weather was warm at the time and sometimes it would rain almost everyday. He also said they made it inland about 4 miles before they met the hard resistance. He did say the ship they traveled over on was a captured Italian luxury liner, Monticello(?), that had been motified, but the trip was no luxury. He will not eat mutton to this day, ha! He said they landed in Africa at a place that started with an "O." I thought he was saying Oman, Omar, Olar or something sounding that. He did say that his job was to set up communications with whoever they were attached to at the time. I didn't think to ask where he trained prior to departing.
I thank you so much for your help, it is wonderful that we have people like you who can fill in the blanks for us. Dad just won't talk to me about other things. He only gives me the highlights, such as those I have provided to you. My Dad has always been such a wonderful person. His name is Lee Ray Adams, seems everyone had a nickname for each other, but I'm not privy to his!
Well, thanks again for your help. May God Bless You!Linda
