While Jerry Truhill was preparing for a possible space flight, James Dowling was serving the U.S. army. He fought in three wars, and not long ago his family remembered him for StoryCorps, our project that records American conversations.

James Dowling fought in WWII and in Korea1. And in 1966 he was sent to Vietnam2 for a one-year tour. His wife stayed behind with 3 daughters in elementary school. Two of those daughters, Ellen Hess and Eileen Tarr still remember when he left.

The day that we put him on the plane at the Pittsburgh Airport was one of the saddest days of my life. You were so depressed3 about it. You couldn't even go back to school for the afternoon. I went to school. The day went by and all I could think about was Dad's stepping on that plane to go to Vietnam. And I cannot remember many days that went by, either that I didn't think about him and worry about him.

When Bob Hope was on, Mom parked us in front of the TV set, hoping we would see him and that we would be able to say that dad looked OK. You know, I remember her loneliness about being separated4 from Dad. And I remember when she made that chain out of 365 safety pins. And everyday he was gone she would take a safety pin off. When she first put it up it was on a lamp. Yeah, it was a standing5 lamp. It actually was wrapped6 around it and there was a pool on the floor. You know. I can remember watching the chain with her and feeling excited as it was really getting smaller. And they were like benchmarks or milestones7 like when it no longer pooled or when it no longer wrapped. You know, and she wrote him a letter everyday. And when she was done writing the letter she would take the pin off ,off the chain unless like it was your birthday and you got to take the pin off or if something special that happened at schools, she would like you take the pin off the chain. And she kept all those pins and just like she kept all his letters from Vietnam until he returned.

Ellen Hess with her sister Eileen Tarr in Richmond, Virginia. Their father James Dowling survived the Vietnam War. And he was awarded the Bronze8 Star for bravery. This StoryCorps interview will be archived with all the others at the Library of Congress9 and you can subscribe10 to the StoryCorps Podcast by going to NPR.org.
