Military Monday: Alphonso Thornton Jr. Holds 18 Battle Stars

I’m so proud of my “Papa” as we always called him.  He saw so much action by the time he was 20, but it was that way with many men during WWII.  I can’t imagine what a stressful time this must have been for his mother, having four sons all gone to war at the same time.  Thankfully, they all came home!

Here he is on the left, with a friend.  I really wish that I had a picture of all 4 brothers together.  I wonder if they took one after the war.
