Don wasn’t really my uncle, but he was a lifelong friend of my mom and dad. I grew up calling him Uncle Donald. He was a tail gunner on a B24 bomber during WW2. My dad was a nose gunner on the same type of bomber. Don served in Europe and my dad, in Asia.
They died about six months apart. Whenever we saw Don, he always challenged me spiritually to make sure I was reading my Bible, going to church, and in constant prayer. The world needs more men like “Uncle Don.”
My wife, Kathy recently found a letter he sent to me promising that he would continue visiting my parents in the nursing home. Don was a loyal friend and always found time to visit, even during the dark days of dementia that my dad suffered. In the letter was a copy of a “Letter To The Editor” that he wrote in 2009. I’ve included it here. It’s to remind us of the more than 60 million abortions performed in the United States since 1973.
