Thank you for posting that reminiscence-- my dad was involved in the Battle of the Bulge too, only as part of the relieving forces. How I wish he had lived as long as your uncle-- he died of a heart attack when I was still in my teens, most likely as a delayed reaction to combat stress. My dad was a "P," of German descent as it happens, from southeastern Pennsylvania, and his closest Army buddy was an Italian-American "C" from the Scranton area, but both counted soldiers with "H" on their dog tags as good friends, and both suffered terribly when their unit had to clean up one of the smaller concentration camps in the spring of 1945. My dad never got over what he saw there, and he made sure that I learned what anti-Semitism can lead to. May your Uncle Lou's memory continue to be a blessing to your family-- and to those of us who met him through your blog.
