The Lope: Veterans Day

Veterans Day

On this Veterans Day, Ace would like to salute WWII veteran Mr. L. V. Oxendine. L.V. served as a tank driver under General Patton in Germany and France, but to this day does not like to talk about the war.

His hobbies are helping friends and strangers, keeping company with his lady friend, Miss Joy, and influencing sporting events via a miraculous process by which distant coaches can hear his advice through the television set.

Thank you, again, to L.V. and to all the other veterans without whom we might not be basking in the afterglow of a free election.

LV is also one of the nicest guys you'd ever want to meet. I consider myself lucky to have made his acquaintance.

LV is truly a class act. I see why his is sometimes called "The Greatest Generation." I am proud to call him a friend. There is probably no way someone who has not experienced combat can understand its horrors. I am sure that frustrates veterans who feel that families and friends just don't get it.
