Corner

  During World War II, my daddy served in the US Navy and was stationed on an island in the Pacific Ocean. My father-in-law also served in the US Navy and was stationed on a ship in the Pacific. I never talked much with my daddy about his service. I know he was not in combat. He was a storekeeper...
