My father went through great lengths to restore the artifacts that my uncles brought home from the war, but I don’t mind if some of it isn’t original. I may even have some American things mixed in with the Dead Nazi trophies.
All I know is that my father’s family history will now be preserved and passed on as it should be. Instead of rotting in an attic where my biological mother has left it to disintegrate. I wasn’t able to take everything, but I have most of what matters. Mmm. Nothing is better than a dead Nazi. Semper Fi to my ancestors who made this possible and passed on a deep need to make sure it never happens again.
They make me proud to be a Marine.
