On that note, he gave me a duffel bag from his time in the service, but it isn't his. The name stenciled on the bag is CLIFFORD WENGER, and his service number is stenciled as well. I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me find him or someone related to him so I can possibly pass his duffel bag back to him or his family.

Comments: Jerome Franklin Foss, from Minneapolis MN. Passed away this Memorial day, 2016.
After reading this web site, and others, it won't shock you to know , that he did
not talk about the war till late in his life.

I just came to have a relationship with him these last ten years. He worked the
night shift the first half of my life. He had to. The chinese attacked him every
nite, when he would try to sleep. Every morning about 2 am, the bugles and
whistles and chinese would wake him. So he had to work nites. I did not
understand before, but I have come to understand over the last ten years.

He never tried to keep in contact with anyone he served with, it was just to hard
on him to revisit it all. But he thought of you all often. My brothers and myself
all served in the military, but none of us ever saw combat. At this point in my
life, I consider that a blessing.

Had you all not made the sacrifices you did, than me and my brothers would have
had to. Thank you. May you and your brothers rest in peace Pops, no more bad
dreams, no more pain.

with love, your son Mark
