    was a doughboy and he had a picture of the "boys" in his unit before they left for France. He told me " Here's the boys...half of them where gassed the others like me shot..." and thats all he'd say.  As a little kid when he told me that I didn't quite get what he meant. Of all the books about WWI the most powerful is a work of "fiction" called "Johnny Got His Gun" by Dalton Trumbo. Its been years since I've read it but stays with me today.......
