For many years, Harold Thompson did not talk about what happened in World War II.

That doesn’t mean he forgot; but it wasn’t necessarily where he wanted to be. Like most young American men, he felt a need to be there.

For its part in helping to defeat Germany and Japan, his has been called the Greatest Generation, and it’s something he’s proud of.

“It makes you feel good,” he said.

But World War II was not about feeling good.

While sitting at the Albert Lea Relay For Life Ice Cream Social recently, my eye landed on a young boy sporting an NRHEG Panthers T-shirt and his siblings. It was a chance, enlightening experience that won’t be forgotten.

Visiting with the David and Amanda Malakowsky family, which includes Tiara, Dacoda, Dylan and Tylar, was a joy. What a happy, outgoing family that has had more than their share of problems. But in spite of it all they keep smiling.

The biggest smile was from 8-year-old Dacoda, who at 2 years old was diagnosed with pre-leukemia that required a bone marrow transplant that came all the way from Germany. David said that was good place to come from because their ancestry was German and Dutch.
