Emo's reluctance to have children during war

door Anonieme gebruiker op 21-03-2009 18:57

Felix seemed reluctant to believe that Emo was reluctant to have more children during the war years when he'd be moving around. I joined the U.S. Army at age 18, was commissioned a second lieutenant at age 19 and promoted to Captain while commanding 400 men at the age of 21, during the Vietnam war. I remained in the Army for eight years. I, too, was unwilling to get seriously involved with a woman let alone have a child, during those military years. I was being moved around every nine to twelve months. I never felt I was able to settle down. Also, I never knew when I might find myself back in combat and die, leaving behind a wife and child. Emo had led troops in combat. One develops a sense of responsibility toward other humans when in such a leadership situation. By the way, I'm of Slovenian heritage. I had a great, great uncle who was a corporal in the Austro-Hungarian cavalry.

You've written one of the most remarkable family histories I've ever read. Thank you.

This is a long shot, but my Grandfather is one of the men Mr. Game writes about in his book "The Game Ancestry" and I am trying to find a way to contact him...does anyone know of any way to reach him?
