    In addition to a host of other ailments, he's been battling liver cancer the last 2 years and yet he found the wind in his sails and cast a vote today.

    The happiest day of his life was this past Memorial Day in Washington DC when a group of High School students stopped to talk with him about his experiences during WWII.

    Thanks Dad!! You made it possible for our children to walk down the streets of America in freedom and security from fear or intimidation.
