While my father was a among the "Old-Age-Category" being classifed as he was he went about the "Call To Serve" was accepted and went on to serve in many MOS of a Mechanic.
This man, a quiet family person, non assuming what military service entailed.
At the age of 38, he would be considered in todays time a rather middle-aged. He went on serve his country in many epic collisions of was to include "The Battle of-the-Bulge"
He returned home, with a Purple-Heart, awarded for recieving a head wound which tore into is skull and a bullet fragment remained as a remberance throught his life.
