Tab Pittman talks about his uncles, Clarence, James and Laurie, who all served in World War 2.
Tab was closest with Laurie and feels both pride and sadness as Laurie came home with shrapnel in his back and suffered pain for the rest of his life, although Tab believes he was well looked after by authorities.
He also talks about the Upper Hunter and Wonnarua Country where the uncles hailed from.
Tab expresses great pride in his family’s history of service, and indeed great respect for all who go to war for their country.
