im interviewing a ww2 vet
what would be some interesting questions to ask him
ask him if he ever has any sweet flashbacks!!!!....
nah seriously don't. but ask him stuff about how his life changed from before, during, and then after the war. ask him about fun stuff like liberty where ever he was, if he got any at all. ask him why he joined whatever branch he did, there's alot of stuff you could ask him. just be interested.
first off, thank him. thank him from the bottom of your heart that you don't speak japanese or german right now.
i just feel WWII was the last really meaningful war. 20 million people died. there hasn't been that big of a threat since then.
Branch, unit(s), MOS (his job, or branch if he was an officer), positions held, rank attained, total time in service, aforementioned outlook on life prior/after the war, theater(s) of operation (Europe/Africa/Pacific), and basically anything that comes to mind.
Ask him to tell you his story, and then listen.
wow thanks guys keep em coming if you can
