A Dead Father's letter
------------
04/02/1941
My dearest boy, ..
Just so you can show off during the holidays, I am sending you a pair of new shoes and I'm hoping that the war won't last that much longer so that I can go for a walk with you.
..
I'm hoping that you behaved just right so that the easter bunny rewards you with a lot of nice things for Easter. Yes, my dear boy, when your daddy sees all of the little boys outside, he always has to think of his boy. ..
Now, my dear boy, get a nice set of flowers for your grandma and give her a kiss and tell her that your daddy loves her.
..
Now I want to close. Behave well and be kind to everyone because there is nothing more beautiful in life than to bring sunshine to everyone. ..
All the best from your daddy
Best regards to mommy und granny

Cordjohann Viebrock died on September 1st 1941 during Hitler's invasion of Russia, leaving behind his wife and his son. His wife got a message from his commander which explained "Always securing the retreat of his men, he remained, as he crossed a road in sight of the enemy, in a ditch. The calls of his retreating me remained unanswered."

A baffling waste of human life.

The "I'm full" statement is something an Italian mother will never understand, basically "I'm full" to Italian mom's means "more food"

Who else has this series. I think I was subscribed to it back in the late 1990s. For a commercial series, it is pretty good and (for me a real plus) there are lots of pictures and maps! #wwii #ww2 #worldwarii #worldwar2 #military #thirdreich #germany #germanhistory #germanmilitary #wehrmacht #ss #timelife #history

My Brother in law is touching up photos of my Grandfather (my mom's side) who served in WW2. U.S. Army 2nd Armored Division "Hell On Wheels" SGT. Angelo A. Capuito. (Yeah, I have some Italian in my blood too) He never talked about the war. Not a word. He would go to the VFW with some of his buddies and do his talking there and then come back home where he would get scolded by my Grandmother for drinking & smoking. (He wasn't in the best health then) His tank was hit by a German Panzer which blew the turret off, injuring him and killing two of his crew. My Grandfather, an immigrant from Italy, loved this country dearly. He was a family man, a patriot, a hero, and someone that I really looked up to. He was the kind of man who would stand up and shed tears every time the Star Spangled Banner was sung. He was very active in the local fire department after the war and was eventually elected president. His photo still hangs in the meeting hall to this day. He's the reason My sister & I would both join the same fire department later on and I ended up enlisting in the Marine Corps after high school. I'm fortunate and honored that this man was my Grandfather. I miss him. I wish I could talk to him today. I can't believe he's been gone for 26 years.
Thank you, PopPop. I love you and I miss you and MomMom. I'll see you both again. #HellOnWheels #2AD #USArmy #WorldWar2 #WW2 #WWII #Tanker #GreatestGeneration #RealHero #BattleOfTheBulge #Normandy #DDay

Memorial Day: Lyle Geisler joined the Idaho national guard at age 16 (pic 1). In 1943 he transferred to Army Air Corp but his training was cut short as he was transferred to infantry as the military backfilled for projected D-Day casualties. Before he was shipped overseas he spent time home summer 1944 (pic 2). He missed the 78ths initial battles in France as he recovered from appendix surgery. His first initiation to battle was when the 78th launched an attack in mid-December 1944 from this position on Siegfried Line (pic 3). While his battalion was held in reserve they division took Simmerath and then moved on to Kesternich. (pic 4) His company deployed west of town and moved north through this area (pic 5). The Germans furiously fought back as this was the northern shoulder of the planned offensive that would become known as the Battle of Bulge. He spent December and January in this area holding the line. He was wounded and died of his wounds Jan 18 45 (pic 6). He was initially interred in the Margarten (Nederland) US Military Cemetery (pic 7) until his remains were returned home to Nampa, Idaho in 1949. He was 21 when he died.
