Thanks for a great show where you interviewed Mr. Hungerford on Sunday. You cleared something up I have always wondered about. My mom has said there were WWII veterans sitting alongside the rest of the students in her high school just after WWII ended, and I wasn't sure whether her memory was faulty or what. I didn't think they would draft these guys when they had not finished high school- recall that in Vietnam, they weren't even subject to the draft if they hadn't graduated from college! After hearing Mr. Hungerford's story, I see mom was right. Aside from all that, very interesting interview and thank you for spending so much of your time to tell us your story.
