Your war stories are always moving and resonate with compassion and warmth for those you write about. You have a gift from God, and I'm glad you're using it...well done my friend.

Keep shining His light.

God bless~
Great war story - thanks for sharing. At the end, in the final dialogue using 'failed to be' may read easier for the reader to grasp in the context of the sentence than 'failed to do so' - just a suggestion.
Good story telling buddy,

I would suggest that you make a new paragraph when the speaker changes.

God bless.
You are too hard on yourself my friend!
This is a compassionate, well told story with a sincere message.
Keep writing your good messages as you show us intimate details of WWII.
God is greatly needed on the battlefield of war and life!!
God Bless you always.
As always, you leave the reader wanting more. This is a fantastic war story with a powerful and strong message. Your storytelling is superb.

Keep the faith, and keep writing!

Excellent story telling! You covered a lot of ground with such a short word count limit. I noticed you missed a few quotation marks, but I missed one in mine also. I think there are punctuation gremlins that come and steal them away. :-)

I enjoyed this piece immensely. Your style has really developed and I know you have an eager audience out there, who are going to love your stories. Keep up the great work!
