'Interestingly, my dad was in the Philippines with his artillery unit at about the same time as your dad but I don't recall any evidence that they ever were able to meet given the terrain and circumstances. As you know communications were difficult as the letters were censored even to my mom about troop movements. They were both probably moving a lot.'

Mike received his middle name from Lorne being his Godfather as Stephanie & him were christened together in SF.
