While at the Veterans Advocates Group of America conference, we were given the wonderful privilege of listening to several representatives of the National WWII Museum speak.  One representative was Vernon.

Vernon told the story of running away at Pearl Harbor when the bombs struck, being sent to the Pacific and having his boat sink, watching his Captain drown at sea,  swimming for 3 days in the ocean alone before being rescued, and dancing on a hill at Iwo Jima upon hearing that the War was over.

Vernon’s story brought tears to the eyes of every grown woman and man in the room.  To meet such an incredible American hero was both inspiring and humbling.

There is no question in my mind that Vernon’s life was spared so that his story could be spread to future generations, so that we may truly understand what has been sacrificed for our liberty.
