WE WERE YOUNG AND FEARLESS

 

My name is John Schrank, and I am a Vietnam Veteran.

My father was in WW2 France to Germany. He was in the Army and a T Sgt. who worked in the motor pool with munitions. He didn't talk about it... My wife's brother did two tours of duty in Vietnam as a helicopter pilot. After he retired, he worked for the Kennedy Center in Washington doing security work.

I KNEW I WAS MAKING HISTORY

I KNEW I WAS MAKING HISTORY

I was born in Chicago, Illinois, in October 1923 and became a member of the Women’s Army Corps (WAC) from 1944 to 1946.

I was a WAC and part of a special project for the Women in Military Service for America Foundation (WIMSA), serving in the hospitals with returning wounded soldiers during World War II.

THEY WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN

 

My name is Dane Kaimuloa, and I am a U.S. Army Veteran. 

I started in 1984 out of high school joined the U.S. Navy and completed 4 years of active duty. But I had to get out in 1988, because my dad died and my mom was all alone. So I did navy reserve for a few years. I later joined the national guard in 2002 and went active in 2005. I was medically discharged with the U.S. Army in 2009.
