      My dad was in WWII, Army, in six major battles. He seldom talked about it. He thought it all much to terrible for his children's ears to tell. Only after his death, going through his personal papers did I learn more. I felt like I was violating his privacy. Bronze Star for pulling out and saving several seriously wounded men while under enemy fire. He was a really special guy. [from his son]
