    Mike,thanks for a thought/memory provoking column.My Dad/Uncles who served are all gone now.Only one died in combat in France during the Bulge.But the others faced combat at Anzio,Alaska,Guadalcanal,Tarawa,France,Belgium,Germany,Manila,Iwo,and Okinawa.They never talked about it except for one thing,thanking Truman for dropping the A bomb so all of them wouldn't have to invade Japan.They felt they wouldn't have survived invading Japan.

    My dad served in the Navy from 1943-1946 as a gunners mate. He died 20 years ago. Similar to your relatives, my dad never wanted to talk much about the nightmare he went through back then especially that June 6th when his boat hit the Normandy beaches and he lost many friends that day. He came out of the War in good shape but I do remember him telling me that it was assumed that he & his mates would all be redeployed to the Pacific and that the happiest day of his life was not V-E day but V-J day when he finally realized that he would see his Brooklyn neighborhood again along with his friends & relatives back home. What a feeling that must have been. God Bless All You Surviving WWII Vets out there--the few who remain!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was raised a military brat and started reading US military history when I was 12 and I haven't stopped in the 38 years since. What our boys did in Normandy,Europe and the Pacific is breathtaking. Ordinary people called on in the worst circumstances, performing extraordinary acts of bravery and selflessness. That is their story, again and again, throughout WW II. God bless them all.
