Necessary Evil

At the NRA convention I saw the Navigator, Russell Gackenbach, of the Necessary Evil.  A B-29.  The camera plane on the Hiroshima mission. 

The WWII veterans all look like how I remembered WWI veterans now. 

I visited Archie this past weekend at his new digs in a Hagerstown assisted living home.  He hates it.  The loss of control over his life.  He constantly talks of escaping, but then, where would he go?  He knows he can't. 

Getting old sucks.

Yeah, something is never quite right when I see WWII vets and they look like the WWI vets from my youth.
