I once was supposed to do a volunteer event cleaning a Liberty ship in Baltimore, getting it ready for the big D-day re-enactment. Instead I spent the whole day talking to a MM from WWII. His stories and humility were awesome, and something I will always remember. The funniest thing he told me was that they would get pissed off when the Japanese sunk their ships. I said that was understandable, and he said "No, son, you don't understand... We didn't get paid if we weren't on a ship!" So, their pay stopped after a sinking... Amazing service! Thanks for the reminder!

When we awakened in the AM; different people, (family friends), were preparing breaky for us. His wife had called the Paramedics and he had been taken to the hospital!
