I just got off the phone with Les Burkhardt, who sends along his greetings to all.
Les tells me that he is getting good help from the Veteran's Administration, regarding his loss of eyesight. Although he is legally blind, he and Jackie have an active social life.
He does have technology that allows him to read and write.
He gets together with Cliff Rice on occasion, but they can't seem to get any activity going with the other Florida CBS retirees.
We spent close to an hour reminiscing and discussing his art collection and the various cruises we have both ( seperately) taken. He and Jackie are planning another cruise in the near future.
Why not give him a call, or send him an e-mail?
His fone number is 239-997-5450 and his e-mail address is:
