The previous two photos were taken on the upper left balcony of the Hotel Trautwein, which still exists [below] in Bad Wörishofen, Germany. I find it very interesting that my father stayed in that room [#12] and sat on that very balcony above over seventy years ago.

A few years ago the daughter of one of Pop’s WWII buddies asked him to tell her [Susy] and her mother [Gracey] about her dad’s [George Dana’s] involvement in the war. She told Pop that her dad would never talk about it, so she was totally in the dark about his experiences. Pop sent her a series of emails telling Susy about their WWII experiences.
