About the Book

My true story of a marriage that lasted seventy-three years and of our family during WWII, train travel to Texas, and the obstacles encountered while there. Abilene, near Camp Berkeley, became our home; and Austin, near Camp Swift, before our soldier left for war in Italy with the Tenth Mountain Division as a frontline combat medic. His Letters Home from Italy, family, love, and reverence gave us hope. War is a paradox of love and hate, birth and death, light and darkness—and in all things—prayer and the grace of God. War is hell—a human mistake! There may be something here a good learner would not want to miss: hope—hope for the human condition. “War does not determine who is right, only who is left.” Bertrand Russell Audrey Syse Fahlberg
