Howard Reddington Jr.

My Pappaw (Grandpa) passed away a few years ago, he was part of the 78th infantry during World War II.
I am still not over the fact of losing him, but i have realized that going through his history, who he was, and what he did before i came into the world (many years later)... its just.. well, its helped me feel a little bit closer to him. He's always been a stand up guy, who would help anyone who needed it, i do have a few things to read and learn about him via his letters home from that time; but, i was wondering if anyone here had information or anything of the sort about him.

Thanks for taking the time, to anyone that replies.

Thanks, I've got his book from then. Just wondering if anyone had relatives that knew of him.
