Yesterday was my Paternal Grandfather’s birthday… 2001 Sep 05

Yesterday was my Paternal Grandfather’s birthday. He’s a WWII veteran – he was a Chief aboard several ships in the Pacific Fleet. He had joined the navy a few years before the war broke out. Anyway, one story retold last night was that when he visited the Arizona Memorial, he saw a buddy’s name — and was heard to exclaim — “That guy owes me ten bucks!”

He did not deny the story, so I take it to be true.

In any case, it’s a very funny story, and fits my Grandfather to a T.
