Receive the following from Bob Vernum:
Subj: Memorial day
Date: 5/27/02 8:12:41 PM Eastern Daylight Time
From: Vernum
To: Retired CBSers

On this very sacred day I try to recall events that have escaped me in the past, Eddie Ambrosini being the only survivor of his B-24 on the Polesti raids, the two broadcast center stagehands-loading dockmen who were congressional medal of honor winners who regretabaly I never really got to know.
It takes me back to my service in the AF which I fortunately never had to serve overseas, although I served twice I feel I made some small contribution-much less than close friends, who gave it all in korea.
Just a simple thank you to all of those guys and gals who have made our lives safer by making the ultimate sacrifice
May they all rest in peace,
Bob Vernum
