My short bio: Born in Winner South Dakota, on 9/19/1917. Lived most of his life there before the war. Earliest memories were living with his fathers parents on their farm. He helped out on the farm all his early life. During the Great Depression he had to herd cattle all the way from South Dakota to Nebraska because there was no water for the cattle. He joined the Air Force (AirCore) in 1940. He went over to England first to get ready for the invasion (for a short period) then went to Africa. He spent nearly all the war in and near Africa. After it was all over he came back to England first then to The States. He was discharged as a master Sargent in Sept 1945. He got The Bronze Star for his service. After the war he worked bridge construction for 20 years. Then he worked 20 years as a state bridge inspector. He forgot the exact year he retired (in the 1980's). I've never once saw him get mad and he is very kind and patient. My Great Grandmother passed away in 2004 and he now lives by himself. Ask him anything!
EDIT: Thank you all for sending in so many questions. My Great Grandpa really enjoyed this.
