This is a story written primarily for the grandchildren of Robert T. (Arizona Bob) Kubista. It covers the period during which their grandfather served before, during and after the World War II. I doubt any of them have any real idea of what he did or where he was. And WWII is something the younger generations just don’t know about. The sources for all this come from the stories my father shared with me, my brother sister and mother. Other sources include the hundreds of letters my father wrote to his fiancé, my mother Leona, as well as to his own parents. Since they were written at the time the events occurred or within a day or two, these letters are invaluable in verifying dates, times, places and events.
Bob probably did no more nor any less than anyone of the 6 million who served in uniform during WWII. But his story deserves to be told, as well as all the other stories written or as yet unrecorded. I hope this book encourages others to capture the events of their own families if for no other reason than to provide their children and grandchildren with a legacy.
