wow - they wouldnt give you leave for your father's funeral...that is sad. I am sure your mother would have had an easier time if you had been there.

When my uncle on PT 300 died, my father, who was also in the Pacific area, was eventually given bereavement leave for a month. I often wonder how he found out about his brother's death. It is a good thing he got leave when he did as his unit was shipped out to IwoJima or some other monstrous battle while he was on leave.
