On January 1, 1943 my father enlisted in the US Army he was 19 years old. On January 1, 1945 he headed to Germany and was there until May 8, 1945 and during this time he turned 21 and saw battle. He served his country proudly and would tell the occasional story about being there. I am in the process of trying to obtain any medals my dad may have received. I am so proud of his service and wish he were still here to share this day with. Daddy I love and miss you very much.
