Regarding “They saved democracy from fascism,” July 16, Pages 10-11:

This is a beautifully narrated and detail-oriented piece. Kudos to Kristen Hannum. My father also served in World War ll but died in 1992. He would have loved visiting with the others who served. This piece is wonderfully factual while fully embracing the service and respect and dignity of our remaining WWll vets. Mike Pungercar is a prince.
