I Interviewed a 27-Year Army Vet Today

200I’m doing a series of feature stories on residents of several senior living communities over the next couple of weeks and have decided to highlight some of the truly remarkable people I’ve been lucky enough to talk to.

Today’s subject was a guy named Al born in The Bronx in 1918. In addition to playing minor league football for the New York Giants, he spent 27 years in the US Army, in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, eventually rising to the rank of full Colonel as a military intelligence officer.

He’s 98 years old now and still plays a round of golf every week.
