This is the only record of my father’s voice. A three minute interview in an Army field hospital in France. My father was wounded serving under General Patton in the Normandy Beach Invasion. The year was 1945. It was the third month of the invasion and the militarily location was called “The Siegfried Line”… This is the place of where this story once began, yet it has taken nearly seventy-five years (2020) to come into public closure. Pertaining to the real truth behind the reason for his wounds, but more so for the many souls involved that day. Those of whom that shall never know just how close they came to annihilation. It is my honor to share with you now a tribute to my father for his deed and of unspoken words me. Still I gathered in from the few closest to him after his passing, to bring this to you this day. They too have all passed away, leaving myself alone with these words. I feel as if the last man standing to deliver this message, because I am. If only for a future child to recognize, by way of their own fading stories of ancestor past. Or perhaps you would not have even existed.. . . . To Be Continued . . .
