Like many veterans of his era, Sgt. Steve Maharidge never talked about "the good war." On the surface, the Maharidges were a normal working-class family in the suburbs of Cleveland. But behind closed doors, even the most mundane moments could trigger Steve's violent, traumatic episodes, which left his son Dale searching for clues to his past. And yet, there was only one: a black-and-white photograph of Steve with another soldier that hung permanently on the wall in the basement. In The Dead Drink First, Dale Maharidge, now a Pulitzer Prize-winning author and journalist, recounts his 18-year quest to learn everything he could about the man in the photo with the hopes of discovering a side of his late father he never knew. The result was something Dale never expected: Not only would he learn the man's name - Herman Walter Mulligan - but he would help locate his remains and ultimately bring him home 74 years after he was killed in action. In this deeply personal audio documentary, Dale retraces his journey through never-before-heard conversations with WWII veterans, their children, and the team of strangers that assembled to find Mulligan and bury him on American soil. In an epic search for a lost Marine, Dale finds forgiveness, lifelong friendships, and uncovers the rich, uniquely American truth about how and why we repatriate our fallen soldiers. Please note: This story features explicit language and references to domestic abuse, violence, and war that may be upsetting to some listeners. Discretion is advised.… (mer)

Interesting and touching. Also took me back to my time serving on Okinawa. ( )

A heartwarming story of finding a soldier missing in Okinawa in WWII told by the son of another WWII veteran. It explores the aftermath of PTSD on a soldier's family from several viewpoints. ( )

The account of a man trying to find what really happened to his deceased father's best friend, who was killed in WWII. An extremely interesting account of how the death of his father's best friend shaped life of not only his father, but also his family for decades. His father would never speak about it. The author tracks down records, finds and interviews those still alive from his father's company and eventually puts together the full account, and after many years finally even brings the mysterious man's remains back. It is impactful, and hearing from those who lived through those events in WWII is very enlightening and important. This is an audiobook well worth everyone's time. I didn't regret a minute of this book. ( )

Like many veterans of that era, Dale Maharidge's father never talked much about his experiences in World War II. On the surface, the Maharidges were a normal middle class family living in the Cleveland suburbs. But behind closed doors, even the most mundane event could trigger Maharidge's father's violent and traumatic episodes. Dale searched for clues to his father's behavior, but there was only one: a black-and-white photograph of his father with another soldier that hung on the wall in the basement.

In The Dead Drink First, Maharidge, writes about his 18-year search to learn everything he could about the man in the photo with the hopes of discovering a side of his father he never knew. As a result, he not only learned the man’s name - Herman Walter Mulligan - but he also helped locate his remains and bring him home 74 years after he was killed in action.

Maharidge retraces his journey through recorded conversations with WWII veterans, their children, and the team of strangers that assembled to find Mulligan and bury him on American soil. Through his long search for a lost Marine, Maharidge finds forgiveness, lifelong friendships, and uncovers the rich, uniquely American truth about how and why we repatriate our fallen soldiers. ( )

The author, Dale Maharidge, shares his family history, it's mystery photo, and his quest to put to rest a lingering, lifelong emotional trauma of his father's from WWII. He shares actual tapes of interviews and so much more. The true story highlights the invisible and/or undiagnosed trauma experienced by so many combat veterans. Well done and quite moving! ( )
