I've become way more interested in it over the years, I
wish I had paid more attention to it in school! My father
went into the Marines at 16 years old. I have some items
of his from back then, field jacket, gaiters, long handled

Last year I 'inherited' my Mom's hope chest, and when I
went through came across pictures I'd never seen, of my
Dad during the war years. He refuses to talk about it at all,
never has really, I only know a couple of stories that I
pried out of him by roundabout means. I wish I could get him
to say more, since at 87 years old, there's not much time
before that's all lost, but I don't think it's going to happen!
