About the Author

The vale of years, induced the daughter on several occasions to query her octogenarian grandfather about his journey in life, not so much for her sake but for her children's. Her genuine concern was displayed when she purchased and gave to him "A Grandfather Book" which deals with questions that grandchildren seek answers.

The grandfather has compiled with his daughter's request, however, he has gone several thousand measures beyond her request.

the thrust of his narration is to answer his children's questions, and to his loved ones and to the chance reader of this treatise; he has striven to make his story colorful, trustful, injected with delightful and humor and with heart rendering drama.

This old man is an honorably discharged U.S. Marine with the Orders of the Purple Heart with the Gold Star and he was awarded the Conspicuous Service Cross from New York State.

Following the World War II years the author earned the B.Sc., MEd. and M.A. degrees and in the summer of 1963 and 1965 he was an exchange student to the Soviet Union under the auspices of the United States government.

His marriage of 57 years has been blessed with three children and two grandchildren.

As a final note, to busy himself he has displayed unorthodox taste in his hobbies; he collects barbwire samples, roller skate keys, beer bottle cap openers and lapel pins of all sorts. He has compiled an envious collection of U.S. military pillowcase covers from various U.S. camps, forts, and many, navy and air force bases.
