WALHALLA — On Oct. 7, 1952, during the Korean War, Staff Sgt. Lewis G. Watkins, a Seneca native, distinguished himself above and beyond the call of duty while retaking an outpost previously overrun by the enemy. Although severely wounded, Sgt. Watkins was able to save many of his men by shoving them aside as a grenade landed among them. While attempting to retrieve the deadly missile and hurl it back at the enemy, the grenade exploded and mortally wounded Watkins. For this act of unconditional heroism, he was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.

But let me tell you Tell Willie and Take Five are my favorite parts. Willie, I find you to be a smart, humble, considerate and humorous man. Your responses sometimes make me chuckle and other times make me say, Amen. Just think of me as a happy Journal reader.
