RichieLaw: Wow. What an insanely incredible life this guy lived.It makes me wonder, reading these obituaries from WWII heros, do we still have people like them? Are there so many incredible stories because of the scope of the war and amount of people involved? Or was there something different about that time that made men and women braver and more courageous?Or have we just not experienced an event as horrible as WWII to bring out the best in us?
