Bobert... very close backgrounds... :)

dad's family were bricklayers & stone masons who left Italy for the US at the end of the 19th century.

the Veterans Bill let some of family attend college... but the union enabled "mere" laborers... no matter how skilled... to join the middle class and aspire for a better future for their kids.
