My Father’s War Stories from World War II

On the occasion of Memorial Day and in honor of all those who paid the ultimate price in service to their country, I decided to publish a series of war stories that hold a special value in my heart, because they were written by my father, Ted. He served as a low-ranking enlisted man in the U.S. Army during World War II, and the stories appear in his 1992 autobiography, Some Events in One Life: Mine! Please know he captured these stories as a means to provide his children and theirs context for his participation in one of history’s most harrowing events, World War II, not for any commercial gain.

Links to each of those installments, 12 in all, appear below:
