WW2 veteran at Pearl Harbor in Normandy

Early November I was stopped for lunch
at the “Boutique Du Holdy” in Sainte-Marie-du-Mont
and I had the honor of meeting
Robert Fernandez called “Bob”.

Bob was a cook at age 17 abord the USS CURTIS,
the boat he was on was bombed by
japanese airplanes on December 7th 1941.

He was found while he was stuck in the 3rd deck
way down below amongst 22 dead bodies !

This year is the 77th anniversary.

I hope Bob stays with us as long as possible he’s 94 !
