The injured soldier at the beginning of the movie is my Dad,
1st Lt. John W. Pfeffer. He died on Sept. 4, 2002. He was in the 91st Infantry Division and served in WWII. He was injured by a mortar shell and hospitalized for his injuries in Rome, Italy.
He was one of 19 children and was born on Nov. 30, 1919. That is a very special tribute to my patron saint. Thanks,Tom Hanks. God Blessed You with remarkable acting talent. Our entire family hopes you receive an Academy Award for "Cloud Atlas".
