Lovely post, Stacey, and a fitting way to honor your father and the others who served in WWII. He'd be very proud!

My father fought in WWII but he didn't talk about it at all. He's still alive but when I ask he always says, "Why do you want to know about that? Forget it." Thanks for the book reference, I'm going to read it.

What a wonderful and meaningful collage.

Thanks for the very moving post, Stacey. It's interesting how stories overlap. My dad was a medic who fought across France and Germany. He was replaced once and soon after the Nazis captured his replacement. All those ordinary soldiers who acted so extaordinarily.


Thanks for these comments. Your father's story is incredible Larry. How does one even make sense of it? They were extraordinary.

This is a marvelous post. I have always loved that stellar collage.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
