Great Aleutian Islands web page
My Uncle served in the Aleutian islands in 1944-1945.
in the Signal Corps - photographer.
We found this great web page.
He brought hundreds of pictures home, but they were destroyed/stolen when the storage unit he had them in was burgularized and ransacked.
We had a wonderful visit recently when he came to town.
He shared this story, and many more that we never had heard before about his time in the war, once he realized we were truly interested.My sons, and others could have listened for hours...
To every Veteran of WWII: please know that there ARE people who cherish every word you are willing to share about your experiences... and will in proud tribute pass them on to all future generations..
and we respect/acknowledge that some memories are too hard to convey to us who weren't there..
