    My 93 year old WW II ship's electrician dad who went from the Aleutians to the south seas to Japan itself is being taken care of by me right now. He can't understand anything technical any more or remember anything.

    On his monthly bank statement are bills from both Directv and Clear. I can't figure out where his phone service comes from. Can I assume the Directv is television, and the Clear is internet? Would either of them possibly be his phone service too? I can't figure out looking at their websites what all they deliver and I'm pretty sure if I call all I'm going to get is sales bulls*it.

    Does anyone have a clue if one of these two companies might be his phone service? He's in the Medford Oregon area.

    The direct TV is just that, Clear would be phone & internet. Good luck with your pop and I hope he lives on. Thx for taking care of him

    It may be bundled through Direct TV. Check the billing.

    wireguy,

    Thank your dad for me. If not for him and his generation, we would be speaking Japanese.

    My Grandpa who just passed away last fall was also part of the South Pacific. He was a Ball Turret Gunner on a TBF Avenger off the Aircraft Carrier USS Salamaua (CVE-96) which was a Casablanca class escort carrier of the United States Navy. I bet your dad is familiar with it.


    Sorry to get off subject.
