"Uh-I had an uncle who was one of the um first American troops to go into Auschwitz and liberate the concentration camps."
Whoops. He "misspoke". Among other things, the Red Army liberated Auschwitz and, more importantly, his "uncle" was completely fictional.
Whoops. Misspoke again. He meant to say that his Great Uncle Charlie liberated Buchenwald. (Charlie was in the NAVY.)
Whoops. Well, but, "He heard the stories of fellow troops who had entered Auschwitz and Treblinka." Fellow troops? Red Army troops? And the Nazis razed Treblinka in October 1944 after a large number of the prisoners rioted and escaped.
Whoops. Yeah, but Grandpa Dumham signed up for the military the day after "the bomb that fell on Pearl Harbor." (Enlistment date: 8 June 1942.)
Whoops. Well, that's what happens when you deal with "countries like Europe."
Somebody call a Navy "Corpseman."
