|nc storybender||PFC Frank E Workman|
Thank you, Roland, for posting the photos and the memorial for my father. PFC Frank Workman was with the HQ co and served in the Italian campaign. From family stories, I learned that all the other members of his platoon were killed when the unit was overrun by German soldiers. My father sought refuge in the basement of a farmhouse and thus was the only survivor. Whether by fate or by divine intervention, he survived that attack.
Another deadly enemy was to attack my father in the first months of 1945. He was infected with tuberculosis while on active duty. After suffering with this disease for nine years, my dad succumbed in 1955.
His suffering with this ailment was horrific; not only were the physical tolls enormous, but my parents divorced as a direct effect of the tuberculosis. His military pictures document a slow descent into despair and sadness due to his illness. He enlisted in the Army as a young, smiling recruit. The later pictures show a man who looks at least ten years older,gaunt with a haunted, faraway look in his eyes. We, his children and his wife, my mother, also suffered from the loss of a good man.
Such is war; many other families suffered losses to World War II. It helps us when other people, like you, remember our husbands, fathers, brothers, uncles,cousins.
So, Dad, I remember you and......Thank you, Soldier.

Thanks for the photo!
|Kenneth||RE: Lt. George W. Hammond|
I did a little more research and think that two of Lt. Hammond's younger Brothers are still alive. Harold would be 95 and Hulett would be 91. His younger Brother Bobby passed last year.
