Veterans saluted

Thanks for publishing the true story of Kenneth Schechter, the Korean War pilot who was guided by Lt. Howard Thayer, to a safe landing in 1952 after being blinded in flight by an enemy shell.

His obituary reminds us of true heroes that do amazing things every day. Both of those veterans deserve a salute and our remembrance.
