    This guy is a real gentleman, nothing is to much for him when it comes to advice about his and others War details. This is the type of chap he is: :thumb:

    "I am now rattling along in my 83rd year. Recently I have been re-classed from 100% severely war disabled, to "very severely war disabled" That was accompanied by the "Exceptional Injuries Award". I do find it very difficult to walk at all these days, but with my usual stubbornness I do... if only for very short distances."

    Jim, what a guy! Seriously! Being a relatively fit young man (21) with mild arthitis, I sure can appreciate his determination in regards to walking.

    I agree he has a very touching story. Someone you could look up too. It would be an honor to have been in his presence.

    Yes, I agree. This is probably one of the most engaging stories that I have read in a while. This is why I love visiting this site.

    Awesome! This reminds me of my neighbor... he's 93 now and I see him walking down the sidewalk (albeit with a cane now) nearly every day. He doesn't go very far because of doctor's orders and they took his license to drive away just a couple of years ago, but he's truly an inspiration.

    I have to smile wondering if he has a treadmill inside for days like today when it's snowing. :ponder: Oh, yes, it *is* connected to the thread because *he* served proudly in WWII as well. :smirk:

    I'm always kind of in awe of the relatively young veterans because my father, who fought as well, would be 96 years if he were alive. The veterans who are in their early 80's must have been so young.

    Deepest respect for people like Brian.
