A lake area author has written a book on combat veterans and he came to the National D-Day Memorial last week to sign copies.
Bob Vanderlinde knows something about serving in combat. A member of the 187th Airborne, he made two combat jumps during the Korean War. He was wounded three times and still has pieces of shrapnel in his body.
His first jump was on Oct. 20, 1950.
“We jumped 50 miles north of Pyongyang,” he said.
