Denis O'Connor was my Great Uncle "Buster". He was the son of Viora (nee Carrick) and Denis O'Connor and the Brother of Margaret "Margie" Bradler (my Grandmother). He never married or had children.

He was a Tanker in the Army in World War II during the Italian Campaign. He was in the 2nd Armored Division of General Patton's Third Army. He was in the North African Campaign, the Ivasion of Sicily and the Normandy Invasion. He was wounded in Sicily. He received the European African Middle Eastern Campaign Medal with six Bronze Service Stars, American Defense Medal, Bronze Star Medal and the Purple Heart Medal.

He had a wonderful sense of humor, carefree personality and a beautiful singing voice. He used to entertain all his great nieces and nephews, much to our delight, by singing "If you are but a Dream."

Uncle Buster, on this Memorial Day I realized I never called you a war-hero. But you were. You helped save the world from a terrible, evil tyranny in the last "good" war. You are still loved and missed. Your "antics" are still remembered by all. Bobby.
