Leon Bohls rarely talked about the war, and he wasn’t even in harm’s way for the most part. Many of those who have served our country kept their emotions, their doubts, their fears to themselves long after their time in the military, and my father was like that. Some suffered in silence, and some have had trouble dealing with what they saw or what they had to do to survive. But all understood the sacrifice that was necessary in time of war, the ultimate sacrifice in far too many cases. My father hadn’t been on the front line, and he didn’t fly bomber missions. But he worked on many of those planes that did in World War II and lost friends in that conflict during his time on with the Army’s 99th Bomber Group on bases in North Africa and Italy. So it’s with special pleasure that I was privileged to serve on a panel that has selected the recipients for the inaugural Armed Forces Merit Award presented by the Football Writers Association of America for their devotion to country.
