GREATEST GENERATION and FRIENDS

    

 

Have had several dreams of my father. Always in his early thirties–half my present age. Grew up hearing the stories, in bits and pieces of World War Two soldiers: Dad, neighbors, friends, family.

They are almost entirely gone — in fact I don’t think one who was close to me remains. I look forward to seeing them again, laughing with them, thanking them, but not in dreams. Why I wrote the love stories celebrating them in the war years 1941 –1945:

The Last Valentine, The Lighthouse Keeper, Ticket Home,
and, “When the Last Leaf Falls” (unpublished)

Like a soliloquy to the lost but not forgotten, tender music like this pays tribute to these old-young men who fought so valiantly for their loved ones. From “The Pacific.”
