Thank you for writing your father's story. My Dad was a Ranger, did his tour in '68 or so. He never talks about it except in bits and pieces, and even then I know to keep my questions brief. The films "Saving Private Ryan" and "We Were Soldiers" upset him a great deal. When I say that, I mean he retreated somewhere inside himself and didn't talk for a while. I only know what he may have gone through over there because of guys like your father who are willing to talk. I'm glad you were able to tell your Dad's story. Maybe some day my father will let me tell his. --Brian Evankovich
