WAR - Journal: Lady Luck sure was with Dad during WW II. The Army sent Dad to teletype school after he got out of basic training. That kept him out of the infantry. After completing teletype school he joined with a unit scheduled to go to Africa. For whatever reason, his unit never made the ship to Africa. Again, Lady Luck smiled on him as that ship sank on its way to Africa! Dad ended up in England where he stayed until just after VE day when he went to Paris and stayed until he came home in January 1946.
