Welcome to a new blog

This blog will be the product of the writings of John D Hannigan as he reminisces on his years growing up in Readville, leaving Readville in 1953 for the US Army, various military installations and duty assignments around the world and stories about his family life.

He grew up as an only child in a small community south of Boston.

After graduating High School in Hyde Park, he left Readville for active duty in the U.S. Army.

The Army took him to Georgia, New Jersey, Massachusetts, the Washington DC area and overseas to Korea, Japan and Ethiopia.

Many of these stories will provide a great background to our family research as he looks back on 84-plus years. Have fun reading!
