ArmyThomas Jefferson Emfinger
By Ken Emfinger, Sr., Bangor, ME USA
Father. I was not born when you served this country in the South Pacific during WWII. As a child I asked you what you did and you simply stated, "I shot snakes." That was the first and last thing you ever spoke to me about the war. The war changed you in ways that only you knew, but it did not change your gentle manner. You are gone now and the emptiness of so many questions inside me will remain. I just wanted to give this tribute to you and to say, "Dad. I love you." Ken (Skinny)
