Here you will find the incredible story of Ray Sherman, who was a prisoner of war from 1942 to 1945. He’s decided to share his diaries with the world and his experiences as a POW. On the main page, you’ll see photos of him and a POW tribute writing. You can then scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the Read Diary link, which will take you to the Table of Contents page.

On the Table of Contents page, you will find the following sections:

Acknowledgements – This is a wonderful thank you section to all of the folks who helped Ray to publish this site for the world to see.

My Diary – This tells you why the diary was started and how it was written. Click the Next button to go into the first section of 1942 to August 1943. You can continue clicking Next to read this in its entirety or you can go back to the table of contents and choose each section individually. You’ll find them all linked on the Table of Contents page after the My Diary link.

Awards – Here you can see the awards that Ray acquired during his time in service. They even took the time to explain what each award is and what the stars and such mean.

Medals – Here you can see the medals that were given to Ray during his time in the service. I think this was very interesting to see, as you don’t get to see them in this close of detail very often.

Enlisted Record and Report of Separation – Here you can see the actual documentation of Ray’s record.

Honorable Discharge – Here you can see the actual Honorable Discharge paper that Ray received.

A Souvenir – In this section, you can see an armband that Ray kept as a souvenir from his time in the war.

Epilogue – This is where you can find some insight into the battles that took place during Ray Sherman’s enlistment. There are even pictures of battle plans.

Comments – Here you can read comments from Ray’s first daughter Rita and how this diary helped her to get to know and understand her father better.

I found this site to be an interesting look into a world that most of us have no knowledge of!
