Iowa natives Richard and John Carey played integral but very different roles in the European Theater of World War II—Jack as an infantryman engaged in heavy combat, and his older brother Dick as a chief clerk of an ordnance company. In this book, theMoreIowa natives Richard and John Carey played integral but very different roles in the European Theater of World War II—Jack as an infantryman engaged in heavy combat, and his older brother Dick as a chief clerk of an ordnance company. In this book, the two brothers recount their experiences in the “War to End All Wars.” Jack’s contribution, published posthumously, is taken from letters to friends and family. Dick Carey returned from the war to teach high school English and journalism- he also served as an advisor to school publications. This book continues his story into the postwar years with, “The Reasons That I Have Always Loved Teaching.” He describes his teaching career through experiences, letters, memos, and even the tributes of his students, whose love and respect for him shine through every word they wrote. Jack and Dick Carey both took many life lessons home from the war, and in this book we are privileged to hear of what they experienced and how it changed them.
