In Honor of Memorial Day 2016, A Veteran's Story

   He volunteered to fight during WWII, even though he was married and his wife was expecting any day. During basic training he was cited for his marksmanship.

   He was in the infantry in France, but spent his time driving a truck, delivering supplies to the front lines, or,  chauffeuring the General.

   One summer day it was very hot, the General wanted to visit the Coca Cola Bottling Plant. While speaking with the Manager, the Manager offered the General a warm Coca Cola, there was no ice.  He waited in the truck for the General.

   When the war was over, he returned home where no Coca Cola Product would ever cross the threshold into his abode.

   He died when he was eighty-six.
