    My name is as listed, I'm actually very interested in my grandfather's service. There are oddities surrounding it. He never disclosed unit or friend's named and sanitized his uniform (denuded it of DUI, patches etc.) after his return. Claimed when asked that he was a searchlight operator in Australia. Extreme dislike for rice and spam as well as obsessive field stripping of cigarettes doesn't bear rear area service out.
    If course, I may be reading more into it than was there. He's gone now, so I feel I can do this research now without violating his wishes.

    Welcome Aboard!

    I had the privilege to speak with some vets, often they will speak in generalities with most people, especially family until they feel you can understand what they endured.

    Hi Jefferson. Glad to have you about. If you give us his name we might be able to find out a bit more. Many of us have been enlightened about the service of our parents or grandparents.
