Captain Bill Lapore, Weapons System Officer in a Marine Corps fighter squadron and Top Gun instructor. Bill had two F-4's shot out from under him. I met him when we worked together in the brokerage business.
My neighbor sent me a link to a video about World War II verterans. The story line is that we should never forget what these men and women have done for us. Some of us have daily reminders of the price they paid.
