He took the case off of a Nazi soldier because it had Lucky Strikes in it, which meant he stole them off of an American soldier. He took that case home with him and when he passed on he left it to me. It still has the cigarettes in it, nine of them. I'm not sure what it's worth today but it is safely tucked away, will never be sold for ANY money, and will be passed down to my daughter. I just hope that I can do his story justice. I also have pictures of him dressed in a Nazi uniform to go undercover, in a turban, with an Ethiopian tribe, in Egypt at the Sphinx, and money from every country he was in.

Those of you serving are never forgotten, nor are your brothers in arms who have made the ultimate sacrifice. I think of you all every day, as someone who has family and friends in the service. You're in our prayers, always.
cool story....Thanks.
