my grandfather was in the O.S.S while in ww2. he wasn't in europe but he was in deep in the pacific war.he doesn't like to talk about it at all, like most people from the war. i know a few things he's done before and they pretty horrible. my grandfather told my dad and i once a story that while on a operation in japan, a woman was going to tell a japanesse solider about my grandfather and he had to slice the poor womans throat. he's done some horrible things for our country, he's got all his medals and awards, and his pension i guess. he's lucky he only lost half his hearing from a grenade attack on his squad. he breaks down every so often like any war vet, but its amazing so people like my grandfather are still alive after that war or any war.
my great uncle also served in ww2. he was part of d-day but was on the later invasion group. he was a tank driver but was given a tank destroyer to drive around. he stayed alive for the first year or so but was killed in his tank by german panzers in a firefight.
