The world is small.

April 12, 2016

Bud's DucksCarl Ralph Bonde, Jr. was killed by a torpedo from U-486, a submarine built and outfitted in Kiel, Germany, where my co-worker Jean Loran’s grandfather designed the system that permitted it to stay on the bottom of the English Channel.  Subsequently, Jean’s mother was taken prisoner of war by Great Britain.

Today I worked at a pharmacy with a technician named Jean Loran. Her mother was a German prisoner of war in Great Britain during World War II.  Her grandfather’s work for the Nazis was instrumental in causing my uncle, Carl Ralph Bonde, Jr.’s death.  Isn’t that interesting?
