Her name was Anna she was as me a immigrant from Ukraine with family Anna and her brother mike Anna was 98. Her brother mike was ww2 vet he served in army in South Pacific mike passed away and n 1996. Mike and I would as his sister Anna they lived down road from my wife and daughters. And we mike and I would sit drink beer his sister Anna they were so gentle beautiful people.

My point in this ramble mike asked me once if army infantry still had BAR no I told mike we hump m60 and saw he had no clue what I was talking about.

I used think sitting with mike man that has be fucked up. A Gi in the 1940ís you got malaria Japanese charging your lines in South Pacific the terror you experienced man I have nothing only respect for you infantry brother I loved mike and I loved Anna

2. Talking WWII vets, they were the Greatest Generation.

Dad was in the Battle of the Bulge, a Captan and was able to get all of his men out alive after getting trapped behind the line. I drove him to a couple of reunions and heard all the stories he never told the family and got to hear a lot of his men thank him for getting them out.

One funny one. A guy came up and asked what he thought of the BAR and how it was his favorite. After he walked away, dad said " he was a cook".
