Carol Apacki is the only child of Charles and Elda Carpenter. Through her own childhood memories, as well as the boxes of letters, newspaper clippings, and photographs that her mom saved through the years, Carol provided the author, Jim Busha, with a rich stash of stories and resources about her father’s war exploits and her parent’s relationship during World War II.    She and her husband, Ken, now retired, are also proud parents of five children and 13 grandchildren and reside in Granville, Ohio.
