The old man said he’ll pay for it. I’m glad to take him.
He’s an old fool.
Who’s the Ernie he keeps talking about visiting?
You know. His best friend in the war. He was killed at St. Lo in 1944. You must have heard the story a hundred times.
The one where his buddy got shot while going over a wall? The one that makes the old man cry?
That’s the one.
Well, if he needs to see it one last time, I don’t mind going. Never been to France.
Did you know he was only sixteen when he enlisted?
