Thank you for the article. I am one of the lucky ones that get to hear his
stories first hand and get to call this great man Grandpa. Grandpa,
thank you for your service to our country as well as to our family. Love you!
My father served in The Army Air Corp. He flew a P-38, over England and France.
He related flying into cloud banks, and coming out, having members of his
squadron missing.His name was Asael "Ace" Olsen from Fountain
Green, Utah. Unfortunately,He died in 1983 from prostate cancer.My
have other veterans in our family history. Vietnam took many of our friends.
We honor the sacrifices of all Military Service Members.Thank you!
Thank you, Doug -- one of your very best articles. And thanks Bob Sharp for the
sacrifices you have made for freedom. We honor your service to our country.
Wonderful, Thank you for your service and our freedom!My father was
also in the Army Aircorp in WWII. He was in the North Africa - Sicily - Italy-
Germany side of the war. I too have stories and many pictures. Some that look
like they came right out of National Geographic. One with a B17 and Mt Vesuvius
erupting in the back ground. I looked up to my father for serving for 3 years
not having to as he was the oldest son and a sick father. Yet he did. My mom
married to him waited for him 3 years not knowing if he would return. Mr Sharp,
his 2 friends, my father and many others are real heroes that many in
today's generation do not have any clue what they did so they could have
their freedom.Thanks again Mr Sharp! (and all Vets)
Thank you for this great article!
