The American cowboy

Winter Park, FL

My great-uncle, who was born in Belgium and lived in France (French citizen), served in both World War I and World War II in the U.S. Army. When he came to visit us in the United States, he would wear his cowboy hat and call himself the American Cowboy. Joseph "Joe" Bergman was married to the sister of a French pilot who had been shot down and survived in World War I.
