2019: Roberto Flores

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

For us it will be a quiet one, as we have relatives scattered all over. But, we are thankful that everyone’s made it through this month, lol!

If you’d like a nice story to read this Thanksgiving, you can try an article about Durwood J. Smith. The story contains both a jeep and a Thanksgiving memory on the Western Front (see Durwood’s pic below) … do you know how hard that combo is to find?? If not for Roberto Flores, we wouldn’t even have art depicting jeeps and turkeys together!!

So, I was very happy to stumble on this nice story called:

Thanksgiving on the Western Front

    Dave,
    Thanks for sharing the great story. Hope you, your family and extended family are all having a bountiful Thanksgiving. We all need to stop and count our blessings and be thankful for what we have. Oh……and I’m thankful for ewillys with my coffee and protein bar every morning !! Think I just heard the turkey popper pop up !?!?…….gotta run.

    I’m sure we all had a terrific Thanksgiving Day and I have a great weekend planned to follow. But no one had a better Thanksgiving than Dr. Smith. I’m grateful that you shared this story with us. It put me there 74 years ago. We need to know and understand our history, or we will be doomed to repeat it.
