    My mother married him after the war. My mother was German and he was a GI. How they actually met, I don't know. But I agree with what you say. War can change people. I think it did my mother also.

    When man's inhumanity to man is afar off, it is only the imagination that is affected but when it becomes up close and personal, change is not an option but it is immanent.
    Whether a person has drawn a weapon and used it or not, they still peruse their own innocence and realize that a portion of it is no longer there but instead, a certain darkness has taken it's place. At some point, some of us ask ourselves if it is going to be that portion of darkness that sustains us or are we going to seek the better?
    The overlaying problem is, some never ask and adopt it as a partner of life rather than something we had to temporarily adapt to...................

    I retired from the USAF after 21 years.

    Still miss it.

    My Dad, who served as a Marine in WW2 and continued serving his Country for a total of 34 years,
    is my Hero.
    He was a very quiet, patient and giving person.

    Yes, Lara, I served the US Army from 1960 to 1962. It was a short enlistment because I volunteered for the draft.

    I was a Communication Center technician in Seoul, S.Korea, and was part of the occupation forces of the 8th Army, who were there to guard against any resurgence from N. Korea since the cease-fire in June, 1953. I maintained the radio circuits connecting all our bases in S. Korea.

    Lara, I remember you from the other Senior Forum that I resigned from, and I wanted to ask if all the ladies from the Tarheel State are as pretty as you!

    Cheers, Hal

    Hi @Hal Pollner, it's great to see you well and happy here in SO. Thank you for your comment and thank you for your service over there in S.Korea. What an experience that must have been.
