Remember a vet today


Ralph Roister-Doister


Let's hear it for my old man, who took one in the keister, literally, one rainy day in the Italian countryside, while waiting for orders from Mark Clark, the one WW2 general no one mentions much. Sort of like with popes: not enough Pattons to go around.
