was born in Reynoldsville, Pennsylvania on November 22, 1922 and grew up with 4 brothers and 2 sisters.
I've recorded who lost his best friend Walter Garside in July 1944. Both of them were replacement soldier and assigned to the 329th Infantry Regiment, 83rd Infantry Division but not in the same company. Barney Hovey found out in Dec 44 that his best friend had been killed 5 days after they were both assigned to their new unit. He saw for the first time the grave of his best friend in 2015 because I took a picture of the grave and sent to Barney Hovey. I put flower on the grave very often since.
Hear Lt. John Ritenour World War II Stories
We wish you a very Blessed New Year! Indeed, we have much to be grateful for from the Divine Provider. We recorded a very special show. You’ll hear stories from four WWII vets:
We owe these men tremendous gratitude. We think of all of the soldiers and their families who gave “The Last Full Measure of Devotion” and it takes our breath away!It’s one thing to read about the war in a history book. It’s life changing to hear detailed, personal stories, directly from a soldier’s mouth. Looking into their eyes as they bare their soul on the painful memories and awesome miracles they witnessed first hand is a true gift to the receiver, and we believe, the key to securing the freedom we uniquely enjoy in America.

“The Americhicks - Molly & Kim”, had the opportunity to visit Normandy with 4 WWII vets on D Day, 2016. What we realized, while we were in France, is that there is so much more to the limited stories we learned in school. The greatest generation has kept quiet for 60-70 years. We are grateful that many are sharing their stories now. Many history books are actually distorting the truth about America’s role in many of our military wars and conflicts. We are inspired and dedicated to gathering as many stories from this greatest generation as possible, and sharing them with our kids and our communities. Hence, our WWII project, was born.
In June 2016 the Denver Police Activities League invited the chicks on a trip to Normandy, France with them, some WWII Veterans, and some a few students.
