This We’ll Defend: 3768 3081

WWII touched every family on every street.  Nothing would be the same again.  Stories told here are as they were reported.  Many others have never been spoken aloud – they exist in silence.  I was born on Memorial Day, 1925.  I rode in a Halftrack 25 in Germany, Combat Gunner, 50 Calvary 3rd Army 6th Armored Division.  I am proud to have served under General George S. Patton.  A man is known for his stories, these are some of mine.
