Today is my late father-in-law's birthday. His ancestry can be found here. As we research people we never knew and bemoan the fact they left fewer records than we would like, I'm still amazed that we can know people and still find out so much about them after the fact. Mr. Clark was from that generation that didn't talk about themselves too much and certainly not about their service in WWII. The most you would get was a great story about getting to eat cherry pie for breakfast aboard a ship in the Pacific. Yet, after he died, we got his service record. He was at the Battle of Saipan. And the Battle for Okinawa. Yet, the most I knew of his time in the Pacific was the famed story of him hearing about the GI Bill and writing to Harvard Law School for acceptance. He was accepted and he certainly graduated.
