Other Comments:
Unknown why options not available to list that he was a member of the 11th Airborne Division as a paratrooper - but that's what he was.  One combat jump.

Had paratrooper and glider wings.  Expert bars with Rifle and Carbine.  Honorable Service Lapel Button, WWII.

He's my dad - and my hero.
