When I was 31 years old my Uncle Walter Jacobsohn wrote down his lfe story. When I read it was when I first learned that my father had been married once before he married my mother. When I asked my cousin Peter Jacobsohn about this he remembered being at the wedding.

From Uncle Walters story:
The war in Europe had also brought the USA into it. In 1943, Erich who had been married to a girl from Providence, Rhode Island, was drafted. After nine months of basic training as a mechanic, he was shipped to France. Fortunately, he survived and returned safely in April of 1946. The girl he married he never saw again. She divorced him and most likely found someone else while he was serving his country.
