  •   faithpapas My grandfather was stationed here in Brisbane Queensland Australia in WWII. My mum grew up without her dad and did not have so much as a photo of him until she was over 40. There was a social stigma then attached to "not having a father" that made life difficult. We now know our American family (grandfather had 3 more children with his American wife and they all have families). It's lovely to be a part of the family but the PAIN of being separated by such a vast distance is very sad. 1w
