A great article from Kevin Blackistone
One was a young man who’d just crossed the threshold of his life’s dream. The other was an older man who long ago escaped his life’s nightmare.
Both had just left their places of employment after an honest day’s work; the young man from his gig with a Southern California baseball team, and the older man from his job unloading cargo containers at the Port of Miami. The young man was riding in a car with friends, and the older man, who couldn’t afford a car, was walking to a bus stop.
I have just watched the final episode of MASH and had forgotten how heart-warming this show was. If you ever had to say good bye to close friends, you will identify with this show. For those of us that happened to have been in the military, some of the best friends of a life-time were forged during this time.
