It is great to read about a friends father and how he kept such great notes about the war. Too many of our veterans have not written down their history for the war, and many are lost forever. I studied World War II in college, it is always great to hear the different stories. I have a client that just recently told me how his father worked in the Philipines when the war broke out, and was placed in a Japanese prisoner of war camp. Wouldn't it be interesting if they were in the camps together. I will have to get a copy of the book. Thank you Paula, it sounds like a great story.
