“It is difficult to think about the war and being away from my wife and daughter. I was always thinking about how they were doing. The war is like watching a strange movie, but you’re there. At times it isn’t exciting and then the action part starts. Then it is more like a dream. Especially when you find out who is still alive. I was thankful to be in the Navy and not the Army.”
