On Sept 7th 2012, in Decatur Il, they will finally be dedicating the WWII memorial. My Grandfather, Sgt. John R. High was in the 11th armored div in WWII. He passed away in 1993. He was the kindest, gentlest man I have ever known. A wonderful Grandfather, who taught his grand daughter how to shoot, fish, camp and swim.I never heard a harsh word from him. If anyone has any information about his yrs. in the service, I would love to hear it. He never talked about the war, except once, when I was about 7yrs old and was watching "Hogans Heros". He walked thru the room, snorted, and said "We only wished the germans were that stupid." And that was that. I love you Grandpa, thanks for everything. Dawn
