Thread Name: BS: I met a real war hero
Subject: RE: BS: I met a real war hero
My old man was the second fellow in Moncton to join up for WW2 on the day war broke out. Part of his job was to pick up the morning paper for his boss... the lad who was first worked for the local paper. Dad enlisted, along with one brother (the only other brother was underage) and four sisters (the only other sister was married... her husband enlisted).

Each and every one of them echo(ed) the comments above... a terrible waste. Every one a hero to me.
