Forget G.I. Joe — Snook is all-American hero
There is a reason the men and women who served the U.S. during World War II are considered “the greatest generation.” Howard Snook is one of those brave men who answered his nation’s call.
He said his military career started with a bang. He was in his mid-20s when he was drafted and was stationed in North Africa and Italy, and although times were rough, his unit tried to make the best out of it.
“We were getting shot at everyday, and our orders were to dig foxholes every night,” Snook said. “Some of the guys said, ‘I’m not doing that, Snook.’ I said, ‘OK, but don’t come crying to any of the officers when you have a big hole in your butt because you’re probably going to catch a lot of artillery.’ Every night we got bombed. That’s all there was to it. Those German planes would fly over and drop their bombs.”
