The joy of knowing WWII Vets
Loren and Gert and preparing to celebrate another wedding anniversary, their 68th, on December 25. After Pearl Harbor Lauren hurried to enlist and they hurried to get hitched before he shipped. I am incredibly honored to know more than a handful of these veterans as their number shrink to the inevitable passing of a great generation.
I join with all citizens to remember Pearl Harbor Day and thank God for the leadership, troops, and the honored dead in that great war.
