On various patriotic holidays I’ve blogged about my dad, who was one of General George Patton’s tank commanders in WWII. He was critically wounded and taken POW in Kaiserslautern, Germany in March of 1945.
I’ve never blogged about my mother’s first husband who was also a hero of that war. He was killed in the Battle of the Bulge on Christmas Eve, 1944, when Nazi forces surrounded Bastogne and St. Vith, Belgium. Many years ago I did record a 4th of July story on him…
Please remember our veterans on this special day.
