Dad's Birthday

He would have been 85 had he made it to today. It's over now, but I've started the novel and J.D Salinger is in it. There is no shortage of historical information from which to choose for the story of that Longest Winter. The stream in the Hurtgen forest where he earned the Silver Star is the Weiser Weh. I finally pinned that down, but it looks like it's been dammed since 1944.
