In 1941, shortly after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor two brothers, related to six US presidents, enlisted in the Army.
In 1944, these brothers, Stanley and Ralph Dunham went ashore at Normandy and served their Nation fighting the Nazi's across France, Italy and Germany. Another young American, Stanley's, brother-in-law, Charles Payne, fought with Patton's Third Army and was among the troops that liberated the prisoners at the Nazi Death camp of Buchenwald.
In 1945, upon return from Europe, Stanley and his wife Madelyn, who had served the nation's war efforts working on a B-29 assembly line, settled down and started a family.
In 1961, a grandson was born to the Dunham's at the Kapi'olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital, in Honolulu, Hawaii.
