Today I honor my father and others in my family and I’m sure in the lives of readers. Dad served in World War II, earned his Ph.D, and then taught History for 32 years. Dr. Harold Borgh was kind and dedicated. I am inspired to learn more about history, as I remember him. Earlier this fall, I wrote a post in memory of my cousin, Paul F. Brandt, who died in 2006. Paul was a Vietnam veteran. My father wrote him letters faithfully. Paul is honored in Wisconsin for his work in conservation.
