That Time of the Year When I Think About My Uncle Ed

It's that time of the year when I think about my Uncle Ed, who had just lived through a trudge across Europe, and then was being prepared for the assault upon Japan, where his (and so many soldiers') life expectancy was near nil. The invasion that didn't happen.

Ed will celebrate his 95th birthday this year over Labor Day weekend, surrounded by multiple generations of descendants.

Thank you, Colonel Tibbets & company!
