I will return and I will arrange the big feast

Summer 1940 - go. I still do not have three years. I sit on a bed and I look at uncle Gosha. It such big, strong and kind, gathers podremontirovat a house roof. Economic was also hard-working, loved, that all was as it should be. And here he has just left secondary school and leaves to Tashkent in an artillery military college.

We remained without the father, mum without the husband, the grandmother with the grandfather - without sons.

From the father we have received the letter from hospital. We know that it has wounded. And it is more than anything. The notice has come - was missing.

Then new news about the uncle. A cutting from the front newspaper where it was told: Valiantly lieutenant Leonov George Ustinovich battled. One operated for the whole calculation . And in 1944 - m - pohoronka. The uncle has died of wounds and has been buried in Vitebsk area.
