A Book For Memorial Day

Amazon.com: See Naples and Die: A World War II Memoir of a United States Army Ski Trooper in the Mountains of Italy

This is a book by my great uncle, Robert Ellis. In this book, he recounts his experiences in the ski patrol of the U.S. Army 10th Mountain Division.

Uncle Robert hated war. He had seen it. He knew what it meant. I can only imagine. So on my Memorial Day, I’ll take a minute to think about what he experienced, try to understand it all, and to hope for peace.
