i was born in 1939just after Hitler invaded poland.my fathr was drafted and went to camp callen california for his military training.this took a couple of years in the time line of the story.so he was getting ready to be shipped overseas and my mother wanted to go out there to see him befor he left.i was by this time about 4 and ahalf years old and she decided to take me along.we boarded the denver zephyer at a local stop and it was packed to the rafters with young soldiers going west to california also. i think i was the only little kid on the train and the guys really took to me, they gave me candy and soda pop and popcorn.til my mother thought sure i was going to be sick.(but i wasn't)we got to california and there was not any place to be had to stay.we finally got a sleeping room in a friend of my dads parents house in a small town about 10 miles from the army camp. it was right on a high cliff over looking the pacific.we did get to go to the army camp several times .back then they would let civiliens go right to the barracs to visit.this is where the story gets good.i was welcomed by the soldiers in the barracs just as i had been by the guys on the train.it was here that i saved the lives of 400 men.i gave them the measles.they were quarentined for four weeks.in the meantime all the rest of the battlian shipped out and went to the philipines.after heavy fighting and many casulties they took the islands.four weeksafter my dads group arrived after all the fighting was over so none of them were killed. so i took credit for saving their lives and the lives of their decendents too who might never have been born otherwise.
