Carol Grey Honza was raised in Dallas, Texas. She grew up in a military family immersed in WWII and the Korean War activities. As the daughter of a WWII pilot who served in the European Conflict, the Pacific/Asia Conflict, and the Korean War, she and her family faced many challenges during this disturbing time in history.
