My new grandson, Dillon Edward Carbone, finally arrived last evening. Everyone is healthy and happy.
He has some LST and LST 325 connections.
One Great Grandpa served on LST 32 in Europe in WWII.
One Great Grandpa probably rode an LST to Normandy D Day +20 with the 35th Infantry Division.
Two Great Grandpa's (still alive) were young boys living in Santa Croce, Sicily just behind the beaches where the LST 325 first entered combat. They remember the American troops coming through town.
Those grandbabies make us remember what life is really all about. My he be a healthy baby, with all life has to offer. Take time to know him Grandpa.
