Introducing some local 'tough guys'

When I told my editor about some interviews I had scheduled on a recent Friday, she joked that it would be the “tough guys’ issue.”

We both laughed, but then I realized she was right.

I started the morning interviewing two World War II veterans. One had to cross Utah Beach on D-Day when his LST was disabled and the other was taken prisoner during the Battle of the Bulge, one of the bloodiest battles of the war in the European Theater. They certainly were the tough guys of their era.
