  2. Jack was something else. When I drove him in the Atlanta Veterans Parade, he rode in the passenger seat next to me. He waved at all the young ladies he saw and if we stopped and there were no fences to keep the watchers from coming closer, Jack motioned families and young women to come over to the jeep and he made sure the young lady stood next to him while a photo was taken. He was a Hero and he will be missed.
