Thanks Zeffy.

I always have my father & his brothers & brothers-in-law, the whole generation really, on my mind at this time of year & again on Veteran's Day, Pearl Harbor Day...

Daddy was in the US Army, serving at Anzio & North Africa.

He never talked seriously about it, always made jokes about laying telephone line & his buddies playing jokes on each other.

I never even knew he was at Anzio until I got a copy of his records, too late, long after he was gone.
