775th Field Artillery Battalion - 3rd Army

I just got back from enjoying a few days with my Dad's old Army buddies. There are only about 10 of these guys left and they are all in their 80's.Most enlisted when they were 18 or 19 years old.

It was a pleasure to sit with them and hear about their lives during those days. I'd like to share the stories, but I've been sworn to secrecy. However I will drop a few hints. Digging foxholes ain't no fun at all, questionable beverages, cow procurement and midnight requisitions.

I salute you guys. And Smokey, I sure miss you.
