Stories

Because I Care

Clifton Heights, PA

John, nicknamed "Coog," was my husband-to-be's school-mate and best friend, and became my friend as well.  I corresponded with him during the war.  He was famous for atrocious handwriting and for having school papers handed back unmarked because they were so illegible.  We were told he was "missing in action" at Anzio after the jeep in which he was riding hit a landmine.  I believe he was an "only child," his parents must be deceased (as is my husband), and I don't know if there is anyone else to remember him.  He is remembered at the World War II Museum.
