My army days

After enjoying twelve years of retirement and just loafing around, I decided to take the plunge and learn how to use the computer. Tiring of playing solitaire and chess, I learned to type using the two-finger style. What to type?  The idea came to me that some of my nieces and nephews might like to discover what I did during the war years. This then is the story of those exciting and scary days. I also wanted to mention some of the friends that I made along the road. They made it easy for me to get along in a few dangerous situations. This book is also a part of their war years
