Branch of Service: Navy
Conflict: World War II (1939-1945)
Joe (he was “Dad” to me) was an enlisted man and served in World War II and The Korean War. He didn’t talk much about his “Soldier” life -only when I was older did he speak to me about being in Japan after the nuclear bombing and his horror at what he saw there. On the lighter side, he wouldn’t let Mom buy Spam – but he loved chipped beef on toast! Go figure!
He died on July 9, 2000 of ALS. I wish he was still here – we could talk of life and just sit quietly together.
