Hey Marc, I found you through your response to Julia Hubbel's post. I was drawn in by the title. My dad retired from 20 years in the Army when I was five. He also served in WW II and said very little about it. When my son was born on June 6, 1983, the first thing dad said was that it was D-Day.
So, drawn in by the title, I had no clue where you were going - JFC - stay healthy, keep writing.
