Did you father stay in Italy after Europe surrendered?

For a little while.  There wasn't enough shipping to get everyone home instantly.  While they were there, the US military was able to help somewhat with helping the natives recover.  For example, my father was Army Signal Corp.  There were enough downed phone lines and ruined central offices to keep him occupied until the USS Yorktown showed up to give him a ride home.
