Thanks, Bob Hope, For Remembering - the column I almost didn't write

NEWS ARTICLES: For most of my career, I was an editor, fine-tuning the work of others. But I never lost my desire to write. The earliest pieces were written in 1972, the most recent in 2015. A few are pieces I've kept under wraps until now.

Silence in the Gardens of Stone - reflections on Arlington

Milk Run on the Nine-O-Nine - a rattling good time in a B-17

World War II Heroes - finally have their own monument
