Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay are Army Veterans Denton W. Crocker Sr. and Denton “Mogie” W. Crocker Jr. Denton served during World War II and his son, Mogie, served in Vietnam from 1964 to 1966. Denton was born in May 1919 in Salem, Massachusetts. As a child, Denton developed a passion for nature and the world around him as he went on hiking and backpacking trips with his family. His love of nature continued into his adult years as he pursued a degree in biology from Northeastern University. However, the outbreak of World War II would change his plans. Denton received his draft letter in January 1942. He was able to defer his enlistment until June of that year to allow him to graduate. On June 29, Denton arrived at Fort Devens in Massachusetts. His time at Fort Devens and Basic Training at Camp Pickett, Virginia was a pleasant experience for him, as he enjoyed the physical activities, meeting new people and the good southern cooking. Denton continued his training at various posts in the U.S., and it wasn’t until January 1944 that he left the States for New Guinea. Denton was part of a Malaria Survey Unit whose job was to find where mosquitoes were breeding, the hours of the day they were biting and make recommendations for control. Since the Japanese had been driven out of New Guinea prior to his arrival, Denton and his team saw little to no combat. In addition to his time in New Guinea, Denton also traveled to the Philippines, the Dutch Indies, Okinawa and Japan. Although Denton remembers his time in the Pacific fondly, there was one near-death experience that stood out in his mind. On a convoy heading to an island for invasion, he saw twenty-one planes shot down. As they came on to the beach, a Japanese plane was shooting at them while the door came down. Thankfully, the gunner was able to shoot the plane down, saving Denton’s and many other men’s lives. After the war, Denton kept in touch with all but one man from his thirteen-man unit. He then got married, attended graduate school and had four children. He credits the Army with helping him to grow from a young man to a self-reliant person. Denton’s son Mogie was born in June 1947. He was the oldest of Denton and Jean-Marie Crocker’s children and was fondly remembered as a very bright young man. His enlistment in the U.S. Army came about in a rather unforeseen manner that left his family surprised and puzzled at his patriotism. On Sunday October 18, 1964, Mogie left his home in Saratoga Springs, New York without telling anyone in his family. He had run away to enlist in the Army and knew his parents would not approve. In a letter found in his desk drawer, Mogie stated that he had enlisted in the war for several reasons. One reason was that he “wanted to help the Vietnamese keep their freedom,” and he also wanted to earn his way in the world. With youth and idealistic views, Mogie got his wish when he became an infantryman. During his time in Vietnam, Mogie wrote letters home to his family and told them about his experiences overseas. However, Mogie’s time and fascination with Vietnam was sadly cut short. In June 1966, his mother and father received notice that Mogie had passed away from injuries received from small arms fire. He died June 4, 1966, a day after his 19th birthday. You can learn more about Denton’s and Mogie’s experiences during WWII and the Vietnam War through the Veterans History Project, or by reading Denton’s memoir entitled, “My War on Mosquitos, 1942-1945” linked here: http://bit.ly/2YkIkm2 , and by reading Jean-Marie Crocker’s memoir about her son entitled “Son of the Cold War: A Personal History” linked at: http://bit.ly/2YkIidU. We honor your service, Denton and Mogie!

March is National Nutrition Month. Throughout the month, Harris Health dietitians provide in-depth analyses of popular diets many Americans are following in hopes of losing weight and improving their health. Typically, dietitians encourage their patients to focus on portion control and self-discipline in lieu of dieting. This ongoing series will give readers an opportunity to learn about the benefits and shortcomings of popular diets. Today, we take a closer look at intermittent fasting. Parvin Rafiee, MS, RDN, LD, clinical dietitian, Baytown and Settegast health centers, is fascinated with the effects that food and dietary habits can have on the body. In the article below, she explores intermittent fasting—a popular new pattern of eating and fasting. https://bit.ly/2FDui7Y
