    Happy Birthday to this gentleman. I'm happy that he is still with us to be a living reminder of a war that doesn't get a lot of attention anymore. Over 100,000 Americans were killed in the trenches of World War I, and this was only in the span of 1917-1918. A heartfelt thank you to this Doughboy...thanks for going "over there" and helping defeat the Hun.
