Lt. Frank R. Daley, M.D.

My dad is the other main character in WITH LOVE, WHEREVER YOU ARE. This St. Louis medical student didn’t want to be a hero. There were enough of those in the family. His dad, Dr. Pete, had served in WWI and now spent every waking moment training medics for the Army. Frank’s sister, Dotty, had joined the Army a couple of years before Pearl Harbor and was still in the Philippines as a nurse. His brother, Jack, in the Army in special service, had to be a spy. Even his mother volunteered for the Red Cross, along with daughter Mary, who was married to Charles House, a career Army man.

The carefree and dashing Frank Daley just wanted to finish med school, move to a hospital close to the ocean and tennis courts, and hang up his shingle. Even after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, everyone seemed confident that the war would be over in a matter of weeks, certainly before his deferment ran out. Instead, as soon as he graduated, he was sent straight to boot camp. There, he met a number of colorful Army buddies, some who journey with him through the novel.

Oh–and he also met a spirited Army nurse named Helen.

    Hi, Dandi-
    Just got a notice from Amazon that my book about your folks is on its way. (And Roger was so prideful(well at least he mentioned it Sunday on our way to Oswego) that he had already gotten his.
    Should I say “so there!”-well it looks as if I already did.
    Looking forward to reading it.
    Love, Kay

    That Roger! I’ll bet you finish it first–and you can tell him I said so.
    Thanks for letting me know, Kay!
