Dad wasn't that old
Thank you for making my father's passing one of the highlighted events in the 1980's. You correctly noted that he was a retired Long Beach Police Officer and professional firefighter, two careers of which he was extremely proud. He was a great guy!.
However, you incorrectly reported that he was a World War II veteran. Actually, my dad served in the Korean Conflict.
I won't tell him about the mistake if you don't.
All the best. -John D'Angelo
