    It’s no surprise this airman still fits the uniform he wore at 22, I personally saw him do 100 pushups on his 80th birthday! Congratulations on keeping history in people’s thoughts, those who forget the past are likely to repeat it is what I’ve heard and we don’t want to go there again. Thanks for telling your story. Best wishes.
