Hello again,

My grandfather also served in WW2 and let me tell you that nobody can come out of that intact! The war stories that he used to tell, especially when drunk!

I have never heard of this man.

Later my friend!
XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO

I had the pleasure to hear him speak in the mid-90's. He's a greater Hoosier than the the almighty Evil Spock. RIP.
