Somethings been going on in this country for quite a while now, and that is more and more members of America's greatest generation, who fought and died to save the world from fascism, are disappearing at a phenomenal rate.

So when these kinds of stories show up in the papers, it warms my heart and makes me grateful for their sacrifices. So, thank you Joe... I salute you.
