dc.description.abstractOn May 15, 2010 Albert Holman, Jr. sat down at his home in Loveland, CO and told of his experiences in World War II. Al, born and raised on a farm outside Brighton, CO, served in the Navy aboard the LST-960. The LSTs were the workhorses of the Navy and Al tells of his time aboard the ship as it hauled supplies and equipment throughout the Pacific, including a number of runs into Japan after the war ended. After the war, Al returned home and farmed for a number of years before opening a successful carpet cleaning business. He plays the accordion and was a member of a popular polka band. He also married his lovely wife Lidwina. They have been married for 62 years and have 5 children, 8 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.
