Only in America

Last Monday while I was waiting for my flight back to Florida, a group came into the National Airport. They were there to welcome a war hero. He was arriving in the same plane that I was flying out on. This 95 year old former soldier was on the beach on D-Day, he fought at the Battle of the Bulge, and he participated in the liberation of Paris. He had just received the French L├ęgion d’Honneur. This first video is mainly of the organization of ladies who were there to welcome him.

Can you believe it? A war hero, the group of ladies there to welcome and congratulate him, and they didn’t know his name. I searched the web with no success. Geeze!

Can anybody help me out?

On Friday we’re heading out for an Alaskan Cruise. It’s on Frau Grace’s bucket list. (God help me) Meanwhile, for the next four weeks I’m posting strips from 2001. I’ll be back in Florida on June 4, and then we are going up north for about three weeks. This week my psychiatrist makes an appearance. But not for me. My tune-up was in 2002.

      Nope. If you look at the guy in my video and the guy in your link, they’re not the same. Thanks for trying.
