Here we go–a 92-year-old World War II Navy veteran throws the ceremonial first pitch at a recent Seattle Mariners ballgame. Note that he runs to the mound, he doesn’t just walk, and that his uniform still fits. If you’ve got a heart, this will warm it for you.
This reminds me of my father, another Navy vet of World War II, and one of the strongest men I ever saw. He was lean and trim, and still had iron muscles when he was in his seventies. How I used to love watching him hit a baseball!
They grew ’em tough, in those days.
