Military Monday - WWII - Howard M. Wilson - Of Great Character
Joining the service was a hardship on his family; they had to leave their family home and stay with relatives while he was away serving his country. He never talked much about his war service, but after his death his my aunt related this story to my cousin about his character. He observed his Sergeant beating one of the native workers who helped out the American troops. My Grandfather, who had a very strong sense of right and wrong, stepped in to stop the abuse and for this he lost his stripes. He died on 11 Nov 1994 and his family remembers him with great love and remains very proud of his service and caring attitude.
