You may already know the story… I did not.

Saw it a while back leading up to it, was all over Tigernet.  It’s a good one.  I just never posted about it.

I love old stadium jackets like that with the old logos.

Anyone ever take a class from him? I am guessing he retired no later than the 90s

It is quite a story. I can’t imagine how horrific that had to be for those people and the mental exercises they endured to keep the will to survive. Their perspective is always interesting to hear.

I agree on the stadium jackets. Those were cool. I remember having one from several different teams.
