Today Carolyn and I were eating at Cracker Barrel and an old man walked by with a world war 11 veteran navy hat on . I got up and told my wife I was going to go talk to him. I went up and said sir thank you for your service and shook his hand . He had a big old smile as we shook hands and the lady with him said do you know who he is I said no.
The lady went on to tell me he just did a documentary for HBO about the incredible ship LST 218 which won four battle stars and that him and another guy are the last surviving men left from this ship he was 92 years old and just full of life his name is Raymond Johnson lives in Missouri and the name of the documentary is last signal.
So glad I went and thanked him for his service such a neat person .
