Reunions all the sweeter amid WWII


All in the uniform of the U.S. military. All from Oneonta and all together, unexpectedly and for a brief time, in a place about as far away from our city as you could find on a map in 1944.

Oh, and by the way. Before A.M. Learned signed up to fight in the war, he was the city editor of the newspaper you are now holding in your hand or reading online.

Sweet reunions, to be sure.

Merry Christmas and joyous holidays, everybody.

I’ll catch you next year ...
