No. 118

3rd of July!

I just got word from mom that my great-uncle Fred's WWII memoirs are now part of the Veteran's History Project. I actually have a copy at home, but it looks very nice on the website, and there are period photos, too, of Fred, Aunt Lauretta, and many of the Dutch underground members that gave Fred shelter and helped him evade the Nazis for months after his Liberator was shot down in 1944. Fred may not be the best writer, but he's got pretty good material to work with.

While I'm here, I'll give a shout out to Grampa (WWII), Dad and Uncle Rick (Vietnam).
