Giving an old GI his due

I normally stick to reenacting stories, but I have a very soft spot in my heart for all our vets. I also respect any student who does the hard work to study about history. Apparently, a 13-year old is helping a WW2 vet correct his record. Great story.

Really wonderful story! I'd heard about this on TV and it made me think of my Dad. He served in the US Merchant Marines during WWII but was not considered a veteran even though his ship was bombed during the war. There are bills in Congress right now that may change that if they pass. These bills... H.R. 23 and S.961 would recognize the service of those who served their country without thanks.
