    I want to add my thank you to this remarkable gentleman too. His attitude alone is a great achievement. My dad was also a WWII veteran, and it was hard to lose him when he was 92. He developed pneumonia after doing road work while in a tractor a few months before his death. We do need to be grateful to those who have preserved our country in many ways. I am glad this man is being loved and recognized!

    Totally agree with Flat Foot. A huge THANK YOU to this gentleman for his contributions to all of us who enjoy our many freedoms in this country. There is absolutely no doubt that Hitler was after world conquest. If he had succeeded - out lives would have been totally different. So THANK YOU sir and THANK YOU to all of your many friends and associates who also fought and served in many capacities to keep the freedoms we enjoy.
