1955: TOM GLOVER'S CHRISTMAS IN THE GERMAN ALPS, JUST A FEW MILES FROM HITLER'S BERCHTESGADEN
This photo brings back painful memories of my first Christmas away from
home in my 22 years of life. It was taken in the little story book town
of Bad Aibling Germany, high up in the German Alps. I was so very
homesick; even more homesick as I realized that it would be over 900
more days that I would have to be away from my Hamilton home. Country
boy that I am, I almost immediately struck up a close friendship with
Phil Kincaid, a farmer from Springfield, Illinois.
