Uncle Dale

My great-uncle Dale is an American hero, a Navy sailor who survived the attack on Pearl Harbor and spent the following decades as a civil servant. I remember Uncle Dale telling me that the Navy was the best branch to join because you were guaranteed a bed and hot meal during active duty.

The following is a bit of a departure from what I normally post, but it’s an important reflection on our country’s past and I feel honored that this voice is so familiar to me. This was filmed just after my great-aunt Martha passed away.
