At that time about 20 years ago, he was approximately 72 year old man and had been in the naval air reserved from World War two. And we sat there and watched this in stunned silence, and I have chills talking about it right now. And I was in Denver so I couldn't leave the city for whatever it was those four or five days. I was with my parents and I went down to the newsroom where I worked. K b t V. It's OK USA, uh, and sat with my old my old boss, a man named Roger Ogden.
