beat the devil




President Franklin Roosevelt declaring war on Japan




Thought of something, remembered something, and was told something, on Monday, while contemplating Memorial Day.  The "told" and the "thought of" -- discussed here, yesterday.


The thing I remembered was, that while he was living my dad didn't talk about World War II very much, especially not his personal experiences, but he did tell about a few things, & I remembered a couple -- one was, about two guys who got "kicked out" of the Army before they ever went to war.


The group of enlisted men my father was in, went to the Mojave Desert for training.
