Glen Timm

as told to Debbie Kuehn

My Unique Life & WWII

A riveting memoir by a Minnesota Veteran of wars in Europe, Japan and Korea

This is the story of Glen Timm, a sharp young man from the rural Midwest, born in 1922, just in time to be the perfect age to sign up for World War II as the U.S. was in the thick of it. Feeling dejected because of his early hair loss at 17, Glen waived his opportunities to go to university on a scholarship, instead intending to serve overseas. His first choice, the Navy, however, also rejected him for his hair loss and he signed up with the Army instead, shooting to the top of his class at Officer Candidate School, and never looking back as he assumed command of an engineering platoon. – from the preface by Debbie Kuehn
