As I mentioned in my last post, my goal is to write more this year. I want to tell my ancestors stories, the funny, the ugly and everything in between! One of the things that has interested me a lot is my Grandpa's war story. He never wanted to talk about the war, not that I blamed him. So from following the clues that have been left behind, I have been reconstructing his story. I have been blessed to have my Grandma and family around to help fill in some of those things. Postcards and a thin document trail have led to more discoveries. If only Grandma never burned the letters they wrote!! sigh. So as I learn, get ready to learn all you can about the Headquarters Company, Third Battalion, 513th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 17th Airborne Division!
