Veterans Day

A day late I know but I was caring for a sick child yesterday and otherwise occupied...

Years ago I had the privilege of working with Don Frederick. He was quite an interesting guy since he had been in WWII. I didn't realize the full extent of his military career at the time, but at least while we worked together (in a small Nursery Landscape center), we found plenty to talk about and became friends. The last time I spoke to Don (by phone), he couldn't remember me. We had only worked together for part of one year and he was then of advanced age. I remember at the time (when we still were working together) that I was technically his supervisor on the job and this struck me as odd (since I was still in my 20's)—even if it didn't seem strange to him. On this Veteran's Day, I remember Don and hope you will read his story in the link below.
