Because of my family’s long association with the military, I will occasionally do non-HOA stories and links on this website. I hope you’ll forgive me for taking the occasional side road. Just remember that intentionally taking side roads is the key to happiness and fulfillment in this life we lead.
Don Brookins was one of my longtime photo-journalists while I was working in the TV news business. During long stakeouts in my undercover van he used to tell me stories about his dad and his connection with the Battle of the Bulge in WWII. I was moved by his story and hope you will be moved, as well.
He’s the REAL Santa. The mystery has been solved.
Thanks for sharing, Ward!
The horrible realities of war. A wonderful account of those Americans in a foreign land who did what they could to protect people and make others lives better. Thank you for sharing it.
