Dear Ed: Thankyou for your reply to my request for information on my father. Could you please tell me what he was like during the time you knew him and if he talked about his family. As I said in my previous message, he did not talk about his experiences very much during the time he was away and because I was not born until 1949 I grew up not knowing much about what he went through. I am doing my family tree and would be interested in knowing more about my father during his military years. Thankyou again. Lynn Clark |
