  • Honoring those who served

    He may not have wanted to do it, but he says it would have been wrong not to.

    Sam Brenner, who turns 83 today, was attending college in Fort Wayne, Ind. when he was drafted into the United States Army more than six decades ago.

    He was studying to become an engineer, and the college told him all he needed to do to avoid the draft was to simply ask to stay at school and continue his education. He didn't ask, however, because he thought it wasn't right.
