From what we can put together, Dad was drafted.Went to Bainbridge Md. In Feb 43/44Dad went from Boston Mass to England, to France and then somewhere off of Africa. The ship sank quickly he said. He spent some time on a life raft/boat and was picked up and taken to a hospital in New York he was discharged 7-4-43/44 not sure of any of the dates. Dad never spoke of the war and if anyone asked he would leave the room. Sorry if this is vague.
