My buddy George Koskimaki - 101st Airborne

It was so wonderful to see this story about George this morning. I had the pleasure of meeting him when I began my WWII research. He was my mentor and helped to get me started.

 

I talked to him a couple of months ago, and this reminded me that I should call him again today.

 

Love you George. God bless ya!

Thank you for the link M1. I read George's story and left a comment. A very special man from a very special generation. I loved the "green bananas" quote !!

Ah yes, that is a typical "George" quote. I loved it too. He has a wonderful sense of humor.
