I thought of the nights when my Grandma Nordyke would be praying for her family and especially for her boys who were in the middle of the battle so far away from home. They all came home safe. Later I came across this article.
An article in The Norfolk Daily News, Norfolk, Nebraska during WWII.
“Mrs. Bertha Nordyke, Norfolk is among the American mothers who hold the distinction of having five sons serving in the armed forces.”
