My father also served in the Pacific during World War II. He was in the USMC. He rarely said anything about his experiences in the war, but he also had recurring bouts of malaria.

When I watched the mini series, The Pacific I saw a scene where the starving Marines "liberate" a case of canned goods from the Army unit. In the show the contents were canned peaches, but in my father's life it was pineapple juice. Having that unaccustomed treat was too much too soon. He could never drink it again.

My daughter toured Pearl Harbor this year. It is surprising to discover the number of veterans that survived the attack on Pearl Harbor who leave a request to have their ashes interred with their ship mates that died December 7th.

Donna, you make me cry. Thank you, and thanks to your dad. Love you.

My dad was in .the Battle of the Bulge, and was buried, earlier this year, at Arlington.

Thanks Donna for the wonderful story. Didn't know what Uncle Don did in the ROTC. So proud of him. Put a flag on his grave for memorial day. He deserves it.

My,dad JB,had a flag at his funeral. Mom has it now.

My husband, Dennis, died 2 months ago. He wasn't a veteran. Died of dementia and other ailments. I'm doing ok.
