My dad was 4F. Deaf in one ear due to scarlet fever as a child. He's the tall one. This photo was taken on his high school graduation day in 1942.

The dark-haired fellow is Tony Bovenzi, my father's best buddy. He made the ultimate sacrifice on Omaha Beach.

It tore my dad to pieces to be left behind, when all of his friends went to fight. He was a big strapping guy and felt a lot of shame. But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't glad about that scarlet fever.

And I wish Dad had kept that 1930s Indian Scout.

Well, yes. He got a small check every month.  He always told us he got it because he got shot in the knee.  He had a scar.  But it was really from marching for so long without any "support"— a man thing.  His testicles suffered somehow.  I don't really know what you call it, but you know what I mean?

I know, my dad rarely talked about it. After they bailed out of their plane, the Germans marched them.  Once my dad made a list of every town that he had marched through.  There were a lot of towns.
