Tell us more. Like where? How old were you there? How/when did you get here?

Hello Bob Bancroft,

The town is in the Roman region, but closer to Naples. I was a teenager when I came to the U.S.
The ship I came in was the U.S.S. Constitution.
There was a twin ship called the Independence, Cunard Lines. Took 9 days from Naples to N.Y.

During the 1990's I worked with a guy who had immigrated from Germany, still had a heavy accent. He remembered having to run to an underground shelter while around 10 years old. One time when they came out they found their house had taken a direct hit, nothing left. His dad was a German soldier, never came home, never found out when or where he met his demise. He was interesting and a true blue American.

I have an older friend whose father died fighting for Hitler. Somehow his mother got him out of Germany as a boy and got over here, found and married an old German farmer. The old mother passed away only a couple years ago. My friend, as is often the case, is so much more of an American patriot than those who never saw such hardship.
