They Don't Call People 'Harvey' Anymore

Mark D. McGraw, Ouachita Baptist University


This is a personal essay about my search for the truth about my grandfather, which had been shrouded in myth for much of my life. When I was able to see his military and medical records a few years ago I was able to piece together more of the history of where he had been and what happened to him in the years preceding and during World War II.
