This Wartime Log is a time capsule one young man's memories that should not be tbrgotten. Ron and his friend Dennis Skorheim said they have been talking about sharing Glenn's journal for the past three years. "We need to do it before it gets forgotten," Dennis said. "We're getting down to where there aren't too many WWII veterans left." They explained that so many people today think of what happened during the war in the way that the movies tell it. "It's not a story," Dennis said. "It's true life -- it happened." Glenn entered the service in 1942. He took part in the invasion of Africa and Sicily as a medic. When he was captured he was taken to Stalag 2B and was later transferred to Stalag 3B. Throughout his 30 months as a prisoner of war, Glenn drew pictures -- of what he saw, as S FROM PAGE l-- well as memories of home. "My mother was an artist," Ron said laughing that he didn't think that talent had been passed on to any of his siblings. Turning to the back of the book, he noted that there was a drawing of their sister that Glenn never had the chance to finish. He collected newspaper clippings and photos of his fellow soldiers. He jotted down jokes and kept his sprits up any way he could. Poetry and other writings kept Glenn occupied while he waited for an end. So many didn't share what they witnessed overseas when they returned, Glenn's words are all on the pages of his journal. It tells a story on its own. "When final Taps are sounded, And we've laid aside life's cares, We'll do our last parade, Going up those golden stairs .... The Great Commanding General, Will smile on us and say, Take a front seat soldiers, For you've done your 'Hitch in Hell.'"
