Veterans Day

For Veterans Day – In 1944 my Dad was 18 years old and a 2nd Lieutenant in the 76th Division. On Veterans Day the Division was shipped out of Camp McCoy, Wisconsin bound for Europe. My Dad turned 19 en route. There was hopes of the War being over by Christmas, but those hopes were dashed in mid-December with the German counteroffensive (which became the Battle of the Bulge). The 76th Division became part of Patton’s Third Army and was placed on the Siegfried line for the final push into Germany.

Can’t help but think what I was doing at age 19 in comparison.

Here’s thanking all Veterans for their service.
