We’re losing our heroes every day

-A A +A

I guess I am at the age when folks read the obits. In the Washington papers, there are usually photos of men and women who served in the military services during World War II. 
It is especially interesting to note significant excerpts from their heroics, which as a child I followed on newspaper maps pinned to the back of our kitchen door.
Rarely do these survivors of World War II comment on their participation, especially that stuff from which heroes are made.
I read in The Lancaster News a notice about a local hero, former paratrooper and Purple Heart recipient. 
I never formally met this man but I did know Wade Hinson was a local merchant.
Isn’t it a shame our heroes are departing and we have let all they fought for, fall into such a mess?
