Here is mine:
My dad: Lt. Col. Henry Paul Brauner died on my 10th birthday, just
before the war was over. All I could remember was we had everything
set up outside & that dad never came home. Then in the early evening
A blue vehicle drove up our driveway & Identified mom: Gloria Madline
Brauner, & then broke the news. My sister comforted mom that night, &
I comforted my mother for the rest of her life, for she had a hard time
dealing with her husbands death. My dad was only 36 yrs old @ the time,
& very much missed by us all, though we all dealt with it in different ways.
I didn't find out til later, that we had lots of people who were wearing
Dads MIA bracelet & praying for us all these many years.
