Our vacation was coming to an end and before we left, we wanted to visit the neighbor who lives across from Carl's dad. He is not only a neighbor, but a national legend.
We looked out the front window and saw Col. Ben Skardon doing his nightly walk. This guy is truly amazing. He is not only a highly decorated WWII Veteran, he is also one of the very few of the men who are still living who survived the Baatan Death March in 1942. He will celebrate his 99th birthday in July. He walks 2 miles most nights up and down the street he lives on and he invited us to walk with him for his Saturday night walk.
By this time it was after 10pm and we had to get up early the next day to leave for home. We couldn't leave without getting a picture with a national legend and an hero and one of the most amazing persons I have ever met.
