What an interesting story. Do you know the details of why he went? I'm sure he didn't have to.

I was digging through some old papers of mine. In 1967 I had to do an immigration paper for 8'th grade history.
Being lazy I recorded an interview with my dad and transcribed. So with out depending on anyone's memory I can state that he was 17 when he arrived in this country and went into the Army at 37.

Last question and I quote "Do you feel America had a right to draft you since you were only here a few years?

Reply:" Absolutely! Every citizens duty to defend the Country when he is called for."

It was quite a journey from Mecheska Okna Russia. If I can figure out how to do it, is there an appropriate thread I could post this into? Also the letter I reference below.

There is also a letter or at least the first 2 pages of a letter a Brit wrote him after the war. I wish I knew the context but the writer waxed philisophical on the war and international relations.
