Dad was cactusman, never shedding tears.

In honor of D Day, I researched my father's history in WWII. He never mentioned much to me about the war despite my many questions. I discovered he was part of the 103rd Infantrany Division, entering Europe October 20, 1944. He returned to a world that still struggles to know the sacrifices for freedom and peace.
