Thank you for adding information not in history book, how long it took to bring the boys home.  Another thing a movie , sorry the title escapes me, made  me aware of was the emotional toll that it must have took on the soldiers that “found” the concentration camps.


Yes, my Dad did not get home until sometime in 1946 either, after the war was over in Europe.  His "occupation" in the Army was to be a theater projectionist, so he stayed on in southern Germany (I believe it was Wiesbaden) and continued to screen movies for the servicemen and officers who were still there.  (He had been in the D-Day landing in Normandy on June 6, 1944, and then in the Battle of the Bulge that December.)  Of course, I was not yet even a twinkle in Daddy's eye at that time.  My brother was born in September 1944 and he was about 2 years old when Daddy came home.  I did not make my grand entrance until November of 1953.  Hah!
