"Dad, What Did You Do in the War?" "I Slept, Son, I Slept."

Very impressive Thom. As I'm sure you know, the fighting in the Pacific was notoriously nasty. Your father was very lucky to survive, and by extension, you also.

Best wishes to you. :)

That is impressive. In the days of yore (not that long ago) it was a very big deal to be in the newspaper, and especially great to be in Life magazine.

Possibly your dad served in the the 37th Buckeye Division, if you care.
