RE: Military

Don, I loved seeing the old pictures of your family who haved served in the military.

My older brother was wounded in the Battle of the Bulge on Xmas Day, 1944 and died in a military hospital in England two months' later on Valentines Day, 1945. He was buried in a military cemetery in England, but brought home after the war ended. For many years,those two holidays were very bittersweet for my mother and father. (I grieved, also, but as a 13 year old, didn't experience the intense feelings that they did.

My husband was in the Navy for four years--a three year enlistment extended another year courtesy of Pres. Truman and the "Korean Conflict".

You were a good-looking swabbie!! :>)
