Dad never talked much about his time in the service. When I asked him one time where all he was in France, he said he didn't pay that much attention to towns because he didn't think he would make it home. Like so many others then and since, Dad never got to see his first son, Jimmie Leon Hocker, born while he was overseas. Jimmie died of pneumonia three months before Dad's discharge. Dad never received word until he reached home.
