Guest Book

The Suitcase

The Suitcase, a daughter’s journey through World War II

I thought I would try these “pages” things by making a “Guest Book.” This is a place to let me know how Dad’s story touched you. If you are family of the 110th QM, 35th QM please let me know so I can honor your loved one here on my blog. Also if you have any great comments (you know you do! lol) about the story leave them here. I know you all have great things to say! You can reach me by email at

I can’t believe it but as of today 10/9/13 I have finished the story and am working on getting it ready to send to a publisher. I will post chapter 85 on Thursday and there are a total of 86 with an epilogue. I can’t believe we have come so far and we are almost done. Who knows I may be able to use your comment to entice them to publish it!

Thanks to everyone for your support I could not have done it without you.

The Letters

Don’t forget to tell me where you are from and if you are connected to Dads Division. If you have a WWII story or are a Vet you are honored here. Thank you for your service. If you know someone who should be honored let me know I would love to gather more stories to honor my hero’s, our military.

If you have never read the beginning of this story here is a link to it.


  1. Oh look it worked! hahahaha

  2. You did a remarkable job of telling your father’s story, Nancy. Although my father didn’t serve with yours (he was in the Philippines near the end of the war with the Army), I got a feeling for what Army life might have been like for him as well; he never talked about his service, and died in 1970, before I was old enough to ask questions and understand. Good luck with publishing – I hope it’s a hit!

    • OmGoodness Sharon you have been here through the whole journey. Thank you so much for your kind words and unending support. It is because of your support I made it!

  3. Nancy, This was been an incredible walk through World War 11 with your Dad, his stateside family and overseas family of brothers. Each week my admiration has grown. I am so sorry to have him so deeply missed while we all feel closer. God Bless, Dee

    • Thank you so much Dee. He would have been 94 in two days. It was so good to see him as a young man again. I am so blessed to have taken this journey.

  4. I was happy to come across your blog. My father was also in the Yoo Hoo battalion and every year returned to Omaha to the reunions. It was nice to hear another account of the story I grew up with.

    • Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a note. I would like to honor your dad on my blog. What was his name? I would love for you to contact me direct so that I can do that. I have over 300 images of their time overseas some with no names. If you are interested in taking a look please contact me at My blog follows our father’s from 1940 through the time they came home. I am always happy to hear from dad’s fellow soldiers families. Thanks to him for his service and thank you for contacting me!

      Thank you for your father’s service.
