Notes from a Veteran's Son

We'd be remiss this Veterans Day if we didn't point out this commentary that aired this morning on KERA-FM (90.1), courtesy attorney and good Friend of Unfair Park Bill Holston, an all-around swell human being. It's especially touching as Bill's father, now 86 and recently hospitalized, served in the Army Air Corps in the South Pacific during World War II. Bill says that his father's memory has begun to slip; as he reminds, "Of the 16 million Americans who served in the military in World War Two, there are about 2.4 million still living. Over 1,000 die every day. All too soon, it will be too late to ask to hear their stories." --Robert Wilonsky
