It is time to break the silence so we can share with succeeding generations what we have learned.
The author, carolsv, is the "baby boomer daughter of a paratrooper WWII dad, and the stepdaughter of a Navy WWII radar specialist." She is also involved in the Daughters of D-Day project which aims to share stories and provide support for "other men and women whose fathers fought in Europe, in the Pacific campaign, or anywhere during the span of World War II."
