The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America
(Adopted by Congress on July 4, 1776)
When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
Over the past few weeks, I have discovered that my father, August Christman, was in the North Dakota National Guard, 164th Infantry, 1st Battalion, B Company. We found a company photo taken at Camp Claiborne,LA in June of 1941. In my research on the internet, I found a book that is being written about the 164th's battles in WWII by Terry Shoptaugh. Terry's book was great reading about the war stories that he has collected from many sources. It greatly helped me to see exactly what my father faced in their battles with the Japanese on Guadalcanal.
I am a WWII veteran and I write articles for Write On New Jersey (http://www.writeonnewjersey.com). To view my articles and comment, please go to the Website and look under the Veterans Corner category (although I also write articles that appear in other parts of the Site). If you wish to share your story, contact the Site's editor at email@example.com. I hope you enjoy reading the articles as much as I enjoy writing them.
