years ago i worked with the Sec./Treasurer of the PHSA. he let me ask him questions and request stories constantly.
he never got tired of talking about it and he was so humble.

the way this country is going, i doubt if we'll ever see a generation like the Greatest Generation.

it's great to see your friend still living life to the fullest!
tell him we all owe his generation an eternal debt that can never be repaid.

Very well spoken indeed. He appears to be in good physical condition from I can see in the photo.

Wow - I was just 4 months old when PH was bombed.

The memorial is breath taking - very solemn sight to see drops of oil still floating to the top.

That man was truly one of the more fortunate. He deserves a big 'booyah'.
