    It won't be to much longer before every last one of the Greatest Generation are gone. God help us. Most Xers and Millennials have no clue what sacrifice, duty, and standing for something means. And the blame on us is, we didn't force them to learn. We made it way to easy for them.

    Apparently, for telling his story for the upcoming movie, Angelina Jolie gave him a lifetime open tab at the restaurant of his choosing. A friend of mine was a waitress at the sushi place he picked in Studio City. From her comments (and without getting nto specifics), he was a nice old guy and a big flirt. Not once did she see him order anything with raw fish but loved the tempura. She had nothing but great stories to tell...he kept a bit fiesty from her undetones.

    R.I.P. Louis Zamperini.
