Memories of WWII sparked by a deck of cards

FRAMINGHAM

Steve Fossey, a Framingham resident, spoke on the phone on Christmas morning with an old World War II friend of his father's.

Fossey reached out to his father's friend, Harold Lusk, after Lusk's name appeared on a deck of cards belonging to Fossey's father.

Fossey's late father, Tech. Sgt. William Fossey, wrote down the names of prisoners-of-war that he was imprisoned with, reports the Topeka Capital-Journal.

The elder Fossey died in 1999, but his son found the cards two months ago.

Lusk told the Capital-Journal that he remembered Sgt. Fossey and enjoyed talking to his son.

Steve Fossey is compiling a history of his father's military service for future generations.
