This is an old program for a Company dinner my grandfather was in. He tells me that only 14-18 of these men made it out of North Africa alive. I also have a photograph of the entire company before they shipped out.

    Nice menu and program.

    It was probably hard to celebrate Christmas at this time-- less than 3 weeks after Pearl Harbor and all these men knowing they were soon to be fighting the Axis.

    Thanks for posting,

    I know. I can't imagine the things these men went through. And to think, a lot of them were just kids at the time. Sad really.
