2nd Teacher’s Pet Awards – Pacific Paratrooper

Blogger’s note

I just could not wait till next Monday especially since Notes has not written about her award I gave her yesterday.

Teacher's Pet Awards

Maybe she will read this one. 

Den Umschlag bitte …

I can’t recall how I came to stumble upon this blog.

Maybe because of the glider picture seen here.

I know it was back around Christmas 2012 that I had found the blog.

I could not help reading in the same day all the posts that blogger had written since September 2012 about her father who was a paratrooper in the Philippines in 1944.

I did not know anything about paratroopers being in the Pacific War.

I knew nothing… nothing…


Was? Fallschirmjäger in den Pazifischen Krieg?
Ich weiß nicht…
(Babylon translation)

This is her first post.

The rest is just about history, the kind you don’t find in history books.

So GP you’re my second “random” Teacher’s Pet Award.

Now try guessing who will be the recipient of the third one…


With all my admiration…
