Great story about your father's WW2 ventures in the WW2 European Theatre. I attend an annual picnic where WW2 and Korean Veterans are honored. All are in their 90s now, and most served in the Pacific Arena. Marines and Navy. I met in the hospital, over a decade ago, a B-17 bomber pilot who dropped bombs on Nazi Germany. He is now deceased. General Patton. Who has not heard of him? Happy 100th Birthday to your father. If, he was still alive.
Happy birthday to you dad. I thank him for his service to his country. My dad served in Italy with the 10th Mtn. Div. He would have been 98 this year. Yes, the “Greatest Generation.” Thanks for sharing your dad’s birthday. He’s a hero.
A wonderful tribute to him.
My dad was also in the Battle of the Bulge. They truly were the Greatest Generation.
