The Interview

On patriotic occasions like Memorial day, Independance Day (better known as The Fourth of July) or Veterans' Day nothing makes the reporters and TV crews happier than finding an old veteran to photograph and interview. Well, it was Veterans' Day and the news media were out in force.

North Miami had a major news coup with the star of their Veterans' Day festivities, 103 year old Dr. Louis Stein. He's a veteran of World War II and he served a total of 27 years in the U.S. Army.

He walked from the parking lot to his seat alongside the mayor and city council in the front row with just a bit of help from his cane. Here he's fielding a barrage of questions from one of several TV stations that interviewed him. He was probably long retired well before the youngest person on those TV crews was born! Some people are truely made out of the right stuff.
