We talked for an hour about service in the 5th Army Infantry Division and his career after the service where he was a truck driver for 30 years.
Bill spoke about his family, and it was evident that his wife and family were loved.
Bill’s attention span was diminished… but I bet he hadn’t had a one-on-one conversation with another man for an hour for many years.
This Veteran Visiting Veteran program opens up dialogue that could not otherwise happen. Corporal Bill came alive for an hour in his small room with me. Priceless for us both.
