Well wish me luck. I am trying to help a WWII vet and his wife. She and I became friends within the last few months and through her letters I have found that somehow Bill had slipped through books and was never recognized for his WWII service in the ETO. To make a long story short, she is beginning to make headway after all these decades and wrote to me again lately to tell me so, but now fears because he has taken quite ill, that the only way he may receive his purple heart is posthumously.


So Marion has contacted their local representative and is earnestly hoping that he will be the final contact to rectify the wrong and make Bill's dream come true. I will keep everyone posted on my progress. I only hope that I can bring a bring smile to this very deserving veteran.
