Veteran Gets to watch First Atomic Cannon Text in Nevada, 1953

Posted by:

 

I had the good fortune of meeting a retired Army Sergeant Major (E-9) named Frederic Barnett at a gym, where his son brings him for physical therapy. Mid-80s, uses a rolling walker, SGM Barnett is very affable and I approached the both of them and gave them the VeteransTales site address.

At one time I had planned on turning both of these tales into short stories and maybe even a script, but the thought left me years ago.
