What He Did in the War (World War II)

Ryan Petty


The other day I was in Tacoma early in the morning, and I stopped at a McDonalds (the one on W 6th). 

There were several old men in a coffee clutch and I got into a conversation with them. One of them was an old guy in a WWII Veteran ball cap. 

As I prepared to leave, I asked him about his service in order to thank him for it. 

I asked where he’d served.

In typical WWII fashion, he said only, “Europe.”

Then I asked him what he’d done,.

He said, “Omaha Beach.”
