My father, in an undated photograph taken at the Casey Inn, wearing his U.S. Army uniform.
My father was an SP2 and served in the medical corps during the Korean Conflict. In addition, my late uncle, Francis Xavier, served in the US Army Air Corps during World War II.
Both "Albert Boys" served their country with honor. My mother tells me that my father saw combat injuries that were nothing short of horrible during his service. It impacted him for the rest of his life.
