The Greatest Generation: Warren Schieser, 1917-2014
One by one the members of what Tom Brokaw calls "the Greatest Generation" are passing away. My own father, Harry Andrews, a veteran of the WWII European front, died many years ago at the young age of 52. His best friend, George Ours, an air force veteran, died just last year. This morning, my brother-in-law's dad, Warren Schieser, a Pearl Harbor survivor died just a month after his lovely wife, Jane. Warren was a unique and fascinating man who was always curious to learn about anything new and different. Soon the veterans of WWII and their spouses who remember that era will all be gone. If you are fortunate enough to have a relative who can remember this era, talk to them. Listen to their stories before its too late. You'll know then why they are "the Greatest Generation."
