I've said many times that there is no such thing as a hero-just some poor son-of-a-bitch who got his tail in a crack and fought like hell to get it out. Some were lucky and made it and some didn't. I was lucky-I made it. This journey back to the war years seemed to take on its own life. It's kind of like digging around in an old attic-you keep finding things you had almost forgotten about. Remembering one instance recalls another one long since forgotten, which in turn brings up still another. It begins to become accumulative, and I'm constantly amazed at the clarity of these recollections from so long ago. I guess I'm like a lot of old goats. I can remember fifty years ago but can't remember what the hell I came into the kitchen for. It has been fifty-three years since any of these experiences took place. I have done my best to reconstruct the events as they occurred and have attempted to make the conversations match the circumstances. I have tried not to embellish the incidents nor make the conversations more than what they probably were. What's on these pages is the be t I could do looking back more than half a century.
