Default SO WHAT DID YOUR PARENTS DO IN THE BIG WAR

My Dad served in 672nd amphibious tractor division of the army for a couple
of years, one of which was in the Philipines. This was the division that
delivered the troops to the Los Banos P.O.W. camp in the somewhat famous
and daring rescue of the camp's civilian prisoners, and collected and
transported them out of the camp to the safety of the army's lines. I don't
know if he was part of that operation or not. My efforts to find out the
details of his service were fruitless, since his records, as well as
thousands (millions?) of others were destroyed in a V.A. fire years ago.
And he died many years ago, long before he and I had reached a point we
could have discussed his war experiences.

Well after watching the Ken Burns series THE WAR ad naseum ad naseum,
I thought I'd come into the group today with one of my curious questions.

What did your parents, family, etc. do in the big WWII.

Mine worked at the Canada Car foundry in what was then called
Fort William, Ontario.

They were inspectors helping to make Hawker Hurricanes and later other
types of figthers including the Curtis Helldiver.

How about your folks.....
