The men and women of the World War II generation are an amazing lot. Having had a father, five uncles and a number of personal friends who served in that war, I've had a lifelong association with these remarkable veterans.
Their spirit and vitality have always been an inspiration. Our 41st president, George Bush Sr., is one example. Now 89, Bush was one of our youngest aviators in WW II. He amazed us all by celebrating his 75th, 80th, and 85th birthdays by going skydiving.
