On that fateful day I was attending a drawing class at an art school in Chicago and learned of the attack on our lunch break. Being only 16 years old at the time, I couldn't enlist until the following October, and I did, on my 17th birthday. I was sent off to Great Lakes that same day. I too am grateful to have survived and, like you, John, wouldn't trade the experience for anything. |
