Preston Tucker, Henry Ford, and Carlos Hathcock. That covers famous.

My Father in Law. He died the year before my wife and I started dating. He was a Korean War veteran. My friend's Grandfather who was a D-Day survivor. Or my other friend's grandfather who was a Windtalker in the Pacific theater. Sadly he is the only one of those three still alive.

I did once have the honor of having a drink with two WWII vets at the local VFW. One was ex-Army, one was ex- Marine Corps. The Army vet recieved a CMH while over in Europe. I never asked what he did to get it, but I have fond memoris of that evening, and some hilarious stories from their service that still make me laugh til I hardly breathe. I miss those guys, but they're in a better place. Cheers guys, and thank you both.

That would be The Honorable Ronald W Reagan and my dearly departed Grandfather, Col John T. Robinson. I would give just about anything to have one more chat with the men who taught me the difference between good and bad, right and wrong and why we must all be prepared to serve a higher power than ourselves.

Other than that, I would love to have a beer with Hitler, Tojo, Hussein, Achmasckrogginsak, Bin Hiden and a few others. I can promise that they would be leaking beer out of orifices that didnt exist prior to our beer summit before the last sip 2A style!

He used to play in Key West all the time. He owns a house in Big Pine Key (about 30 miles from KW). I met him a few times. Very crude as you would expect just from listening to his music but not a bad guy. The more he drank the funnier he got.

Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Gordie Howe. We old hockey players would all enjoy that.
