275. June 6, 1944...and you and me.

This is my Dad's brother Arthur Darrah of Wellsburg, WV. Art was wounded at Normandy on D-Day. He never talked about that, and his family only discovered it when we noticed it on his discharge form after he died. Lots of Hoosiers did that same kind of thing about their WW2 experiences. It's up to us to look below the surface, dig out the documents, and bring all that into the light. It's what we do; we're family historians.
