"direct combat including the Battle of the Bulge"
------------------------------------

my late Dad was in there, too, he drove a tank.
He never did talk much about it to me, had me pretty late in life and probably
just wanted to leave all of that in the past. I did hear stories from my older
brothers, I guess the life expectancy for tankers and infantry wasn't the greatest.
My dad, and uncles, that were over in Europe and the Pacific all had drinking
problems, I think that's how they dealt with that part of their lives.

I do remember him saying that he really disliked Patton, and liked Omar Bradley.
After watching the movie "Patton", I totally get that, lol.
