Posted by mud on December 06, 2004 at 15:12:32 from (12.103.92.188):

my friends father has been recently diagnosed with alzheimers.

we had supper with all of the family sat. night.

somehow afterward his memory got pried loose and he spoke in great detail about being in the 5th. army 10th mountain division. went in to italy at the heal and came out at the border of yugoslavia.

we sat spellbound as he spoke of his experiences.

his oldest boy told me the following day that his father came home with 3 bronze stars, and his silver star was his ticket home.

this is the 2nd. time in 3 months that i have had the honor of sitting with an old vet when he opened up.
