Re: Army, 350 Inf., 88 Div
My Dad was from Russellville, Logan County, KY.The guys
in his group called him "Big Boy".I don't remember why, it might have been that there were severl guys from KY.
I remember him talking about a guy who had come from Sweden
or Norway and couldn't speak good English.He would get the genders mixed up.It must have been funny to the guys
in their group to here him.
My Dad and I would sit on Sundays and watch all the WWII documentories on TV.It didn't matter what branch of service, we would watch.
I have written to get details of how and why my Dad got the
Bronze Star and Purple Heart.I got one letter letting me
know they were working on it.That was two years after the orginial letter was sent.I have heard anymore.I did
get a re-issue of all of his medals.That was great to have.
