Condiciones de Vida Living condition oversea was at a minimum. Bivouacked in pup tents. In combat, we slept anyplace where we could find cover from ground fire and shell burst. Fox-holes were filled with water. I had no time for entertainment.
Recuerdo más vívido de la experiencia militar War is hell - better to forget than trying to remember.
Lo que más extraño durante su tiempo en las fuerzas armadas A good home cooked meal. News from home.
¿En lo personal, qué obtuvo de su experiencia militar? To be able to prove our loyalty regardless of flagrant violation of our civil rights.

I hope the younger generation will carry on where we left off and fight the discrimination which still exist.
