What a great old guy. He must be pushing 100 and he's as sharp as a tack! Fantastic stories. Really enjoyed hearing them. So sad that America has lost so many of The Greatest Generation, due to Covid.

we depend WAY to much on technology. Itll be a big mistake in the End. Maybe what causes our End. Good possibility.

Hey Vincent, I really love your show and got to know a lot more about the life of fighter pilot. I have a request, can you also do an episode on process of joining the Royal Canadian Air Force, especially for immigrants in their mid 20s. Thanks😃😃
