I am very proud of my family who served our country and flag. My father, Robert Neumeier, was a Red Bull 34th Infantry Division and found Rommel at Monte Cassino, was wounded, four Bronze Stars, two silver, three above the call of duty, one Purple Heart.
His brother, John H. Neumeier, landed at Normandy with the 332nd Combat Engineers, June 10, 1944. Dad or Uncle John didn’t talk much about the war but Aunt Lidia Neumeier served in the WACS to help the boys wounded coming home.
My brother John Neumeier served in Vietnam, came home not the same brother I knew.
Very proud, all of them, to make us safe and free.
My uncle Don Fillhart served in Korean War from 1951-‘53, talked about Hamburger Hill, was there, said wasn’t pretty with tear in his eyes.
My friend Joe Stone served in Vietnam, was master sergeant, only two came back from mission. He would start shaking when talking about it. My friend Nick Youkum was wounded in ‘Nam, didn’t talk about it much.
The hell our boys went through makes me proud to say that I love all who served. Great job, boys. Stars and stripes forever.
