WWII Wiki

Dad's Wikipedia page is evolving nicely since it was rated as a "stub" needing work i.e. citations, lists and so on. I obliged. That's General Harold Blakeley shaking his hand in Prum, Germany during the ceremony. Only 800 Silver Stars were awarded in the Europe campaign in WW II. It's amazing to me he could survive this, but constipation was too much for medicine to deal with in his last days. They wanted to, but my uncle and his second wife refused to let them operate when he declined from complications. He died the next day.
