100 pats on the back

By The Bakersfield Californian

I am a World War II veteran, 87 years old. Ever since I left the service in 1953, nothing special ever really happened to me regarding my service. I never really talked about it. In the last year to the present I have been thanked and patted on the back a hundred times. I went to Washington, D.C., flew on a C-47 and have been honored. It has been real humbling. I want to thank the Honor Flight people and all the sponsors that made this all possible.
