My father and his brother were at the wrong time in the wrong place in WW II; on Java (at that time still Dutch) when the Japanese landed. They were mobilized as common soldiers and almost immediately made POW. Spent all the war in the infamous camps along the Burma railroad and finally ended in Changi POW camp. My mother was a nurse during and after the war and in autumn 1945 helped repatriate the POWs on board the pre-war Dutch ocean liners (she was on the SS Johann de Witt, with rank of lieutenant). My parents married in Singapore and went back together. According my mother and my older siblings, until his death in 1962, my father NEVER spoke about that period but EVERY night woke up in nightmares being back there.Wow what a good read! I was too young to know much about Viet Nam at the time but now I am learning why my cousins and other vets I know will not talk about it. That gave me a good lesson on painfull memories.
