A Happy WW11 Vet! (97 and still smiling broadly, thanks for your service Sir!)

Mary Thornton Blue: Happy birthday. My dad is 92 and a WWII vet. Thank you, sir
Thanks Mary. I really enjoy interviewing these guys and gals. Monday, I interviewed a WW11 94 yo lady Marine (I did not know Marines recruited women in WW11). At the same assisted living place, I got to re-visit a delightful 95 yo vet - a former WAC who was trained to shoot machine guns at start of war, and was disappointed the military decided not to use women in combat. They were both very happy to be interviewed.
I wish I knew where this vet. lives, as he would be a delightful interview!
