Is Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel a true story? Although Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel is military fiction, it's about 90 percent factual. Names, ranks, and physical descriptions have sometimes been changed to protect the anonymity of actual persons. Most of the anecdotes in Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel rely on my father's memory of events that took place about 60 years before publication, and his powers of recall, though very good, were not perfect. Therefore, a small number of factual gaps have been replaced with likely scenarios. However, all wartime letters reproduced in Dear Mom, Dad & Ethel are genuine. In addition, all endnotes, references, and the statements in the main text attributed to them, are, to the best of my knowledge, entirely true.
