I would like to submit a story about my grandfather. He was in World War II. He didn’t really like to talk about most of his time spent overseas, but he did like to talk about having a pet deer. They trained the deer to stomp when the enemy was approaching. He was very proud serving for his country. He also spoke of being stationed under the Eiffel Tower. His name was Deloyd Wayne Kline.
He served from at least 1944-1945. He died in 2012 and would have been 96 this year.
I know this is not a military story but he was so proud of the fact that when he got home from the war he went to a dance and there is where he met his future wife. My grandma Lillian was engaged to another man, but as the story goes he swept my grandma off her feet, and the rest is history.
