"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

Honoring a Hero

I found out last night that a hero who I remember meeting when I was a child, has died.

VERNON BAKER


I was 10 or 11 when he received his metal some 50 years later. A good friend of went back east with him, and when he returned he let me hold his metal. I don't really remember much about him, and it I have not seen then is years, but I felt like I needed to post something to remember this hero.

Another Link (with a video clip)


Both links I posted have a bunch of information on him.
