Lest Ye Forget
Those who do not remember the past are doomed to repeat it.

Hatbadge
My father's hatbadge

Basic
My father fresh out of basic training. He lied about his age to go fight. He's 15 in this photo. Think about it... what were you doing when you were 15?

My dad with his tank. These are in Italy. He's 16 or 17 in these.

His crewmates from the tank. The text at the top reads "Open Air Phil Scott. Killed Dec 1943".

The text reads "[Troop] 6. Wiped out Aug 19, 1942. Dieppe."
