Each year as Veterans Day approaches, I share “My Father’s War Stories From World War II.”
Written by my 86-year-old father, Ted, the stories first appeared in his self-published 1992 autobiography, Some Events in One Life: Mine!, and offer firsthand accounts based upon his time served as a low-ranking enlisted man in the U.S. Army during World War II.
While my dad recorded these stories as a means to provide his children and future generations a glimpse into one man’s participation in one of history’s most harrowing events, I share them as my way of honoring my fellow veterans, past and present, living and dead.
This year, I’m offering the stories in an easy-to-share PDF format. You can click here or on the graphic above to download the document 20-page document. As always, please feel free to share them.
