Your voice is a lot like Eddie's and of course you both have that New York accent to your voice. Instantly it took me back many years to World War II.
John did write about the war. He told me: "Your invitation for me to write about your Uncle Eddie in World War 2 energized me to write my own autobiography, because it is something I want to leave for my 5 kids, 17 grandkids, and now 6 great-grandkids. Another vo for writing this is, maybe it will help me forget some of the bad memories of the war. I am sorry Ed if my time line accennts memory is somewhat confused.

John's memories of Eddie gave story the human touch; it would not be story derived from totally from cold official reports.

Both Eddie and John personality wise, were not very outgoing; plus they had other traits in common. Eddie was quiet and observing of people and surroundings. They became close because they each looked to the guy for physical, american and moral safety. Bonding was an imperative, without a friend, who else could you depend on for help? There was no Mom, Dad, or close accent to turn to and certainly your Sergeant was not going to be Daddy.
Our reluctant discussions about our lives, dreams, and other very personal things left us thinking as to how brave they were to share such private thoughts with a stranger. We told each other things about ourselves that their wives and family would never know.
Combat would bring the relationship even closer, because injury and death would be with us all the time. When someone feels there is a good chance they may not survive, it is the only way to leave some of themselves to the world, even if only in the memories of their buddies.
