In honor of Kermit and Keith Olson, Coast Guard - Served in World War IIHometown: Minneapolis, MN(Submitted September 25, 2008 by Lea Ashley)
My Father and his twin brother served our country during WW II on different Coast Guard boats. The military did this to prevent the possibility of both dying on the same boat. As a child I heard many WW II stories. My Father was in his 80's when he finally spoke of the difficult memories of women and children running and dying from attacks in Japan. Somehow those who fight for our freedom and are lucky to return home develop a shield to protect themselves from frightening memories of the truth of WAR. Thank You Dad and my Uncle for fighting for my freedom I now enjoy.
