Dad's Wikipage

The new Wikipage for my father went well and another editor made it even better. I love it when that happens unlike the other debacle I've been involved with there.

Utah - Hurtgen - Buldge were big campaigns (duh) but there is a better than good chance that your father also fought alongside J.D. Salinger who was in the same series of campaigns with the 4th Infantry. Salinger wrote letters home that mentioned that Hemingway was following along with his battalion as a reporter.

I know, that's why in the novel I've started he does. I can't verify that the old man knew Salinger. I don't recall him saying he did, but it's an association that is proximate. He sure dis know Hemingway though who he called "Ernie." They both got concussions together in the Hurtgen.
