    Excellent story on Ben Ferencz, who, interestingly, does 100 push-ups every morning. While I suspect we might quibble about his form, we can all get onboard with the fact he just gets up and goes after it. He can be our "shame reference" when any of us younger and healthier ones struggle with doing basic PT exercises.

    Of course, he did other impressive things with his life too.

    That's just amazing. We're losing all of that history as these fascinating people who served in WWII (and after) are passing away.

    Great story! Thanks for sharing that.
