As we come up on the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of JFK, can Hendersonites reflect of where they were when they heard the news?

Classes pretty much ended, lots of kids went to their churches, but I think buses came at the regular time. No school on Monday though, the day of the funeral.

A bunch of us were in the balcony at the gym and Mike Pintar came in and told us.

My Veterans Day comments (yesterday) were the victim of mysterious cyber cloud disappearance. It was a comment on Lt. Tom Schultz, killed during World War II, September, 1944, in the Pacific. Tom was a 1942 Henderson graduate which would make him all of 20 years old when he died. He was an all-American young man: bright, handsome, likeable. It was no surprise to anyone who knew him that he wound up flying planes. The way he died is mystery. Tom was a fighter pilot. There's picture of him in the Henderson Blue Book taken on the island of Saipan with classmate Randy Boettcher. Tom's cousin, Ed Schultz, told me the story as he knew it. Tom had flown his plane into Okinawa to visit with Ed. Ed saw him to the air field and watched him take off. It was the last anyone saw or heard from Tom. Engine problems? Enemy fire? We'll never know. How terribly lonely those last minutes must have been. Like all those who died in the service of the country he is not forgotten.

Today, June 6, 2014. Seventy years ago: D-Day, the Allied landing at Normandy, on the coast of France. I can't help but think of some men I know were there - and several I suspect were. For sure I know that friend Mike McGuire was there, and was wounded coming ashore. He went back to England where he was patched up and then returned to his unit fighting across France into Germany. Mike was wounded again during the Battle of the Bulge. He got through it and went on to a very successful career in law and politics. I'm not sure if they were at Normandy but Monroe "Kip" Lehman was later killed in combat, as was Ken Harmeyer. Ken was the first Henderson man killed in World War II. Young men with so much promise.

I have a friend who is England now and it was his plan to attend the ceremony at Normandy today, but with so many world dignitaries attending (President Obama included) he couldn't get a ticket. Yes, a ticket was needed. The Normandy invasion was an incredible military operation and we lost so many great men. We think about them today.
