Words from a Vet

Tomorrow is Memorial Day in the US, so this article is appropriate to share. It’s about a WWII veteran who attends the WWII memorial in Washington, DC. He has lost his hearing since leaving the service and has since given up on hearing aids.
Someone has suggested he look into cochlear implants, but he turned it down. I respect his reasons. I believe you’re never too old for anything – a college degree, an implant, getting a computer, whatever. Ultimately, it is the person’s decision and that is what he chooses.
I thank him for serving my country.
