Most vivid memory of military experience (Refer to JANM Dossier)(See under Additional Information))
Missed most whilst in the military Family & home; Cooked food.
Most important thing, personally, to come from military experience? I feel the most important thing for me was that I was able to serve my country as a loyal, dedicated American citizen to help win the war, and after the war, help bring about peace with the occupation of Japan. I am thankful that I came home alive and that I was able to get a college degree with the help of the G.I. Bill.
