    Remembering PVT W. O. Skidmore… My father was born 3 weeks before PVT Skidmore on 17 Aug 1924. My Dad also served in the ETO, flying the B-24 Liberator. I often think of the young men of my Father’s greatest generation who gave their lives in defense of our great country and never realized the joys of a world after WWII.
    Thank GOD, my Dad survived the War and survived combat in Vietnam and is still enjoying life & retirement in Florida at the healthy age of 91! …70+ years of life & love & longevity PVT Skidmore never knew.
    Very proud of this Citadel Man & may GOD bless PVT Skidmore and all our veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom…
