I have had this post in the draft section for a few years. I think it is well overdue.
In 2014, Patricia told me in an e-mail that she was an open book. She was also afraid I would think she was a kook because of the amount of exchanges on Ancestry. Being certain Patricia is an open book I guess I can write about what she wrote me about her father.
Daddy was in the Coast Guard (Navy) during the war. He was a remarkable man. Joined at 18. They became his legal guardian until he turned 21. Received Congressional Lifesaving medal. Received a commission during the war and retired as a Commander after 39 years. He never complained or blamed his background. Spoke French and was U.S. representative to the Paris Peace Talks and the International Lighthouse Conference.
