3. My dad was awarded two Silver Hearts in less than a day at Guadalcanal, and when he returned. . .

he spent the next two decades drinking himself to death.

Anyone who refers to it as the "good war" didn't see or do what my old man endured. It was a necessary war, so my dad believed, but one best forgotten, or at the least dulled in memory with bourbon and beer.
