If you are referring to ulf's statement, MacArthur said that in 1941 before he left the Philippines. My grandfather was among those that fought there allowing him to keep his promise.

It must be weird to be Eismann and say things like that all the time. :pop:

General MacArthur gave my grandfather one of his corn cob pipes while he served in Korea. He passed away, and it went to the ******* on the other side of his family :(

Can we start drafting people to make this more realistic.

As a side note; my great grandfather used to run a pool hall during and just after prohibition. Found his WW2 draft card on Ancestry the other day and the establishment was called the "Tamaqua Billiards Academy." I have this picture in my head of them sitting around saying, "Yeah, we'll call it a school. That way they won't think to look in the back room." :)

Other story, his son served in the Americal as a medic during WW2, and was missing and presumed dead for some time. He always said that he was as good as dead on the side of that hill in the Pacific. He passed away nearly tens years ago, but by then one of his grandchildren was stationed as a helo mechanic in Japan. So in accordance to his wishes, they snuck some of his ashes on a helicopter and made a "training run" to that hill, returning balance to the universe (according to the deceased).

My great grandpa was a POW in Germany in WWII. My middle name is after him (Harry). He was returned after a few years but passed before I met him. I have his purple heart, and a scrap book my great grandma made of his letters home, telegrams from the army on his status and articles in the paper and all. It's pretty neat. One of these days I need to get around to studying more on the war so I can learn some things about where he was.

My mother had an aunt, uncle, and cousins interred at a concentration camp. My father had an uncle who was an SS at the same camp.
