Subject: RE: BS: I met a real war hero
DougR, your memory must be failing. We've had threads before which were in honour of the men who have fought for our country. I remember posting about my maternal uncle who was on Guadacanal and I also posted a prayer my paternal grandfather wrote for him and others.

One of my dad's best friends, Floyd Coleman, reckons he will be the longest living WWII veteran in America. He says they tell him they are dying off, several thousand a day. He is 92, doesn't need glasses, takes no medications and his doc says, even if he has to start to someday, they can keep him alive for several years. His driver's license was just renewed through 2010 and he is restoring a very special old car.

His son has created an incredible website honouring his father, and eventually, others like him. You may view it by going to Warrior Saga.
