12. He wrote it 4 years ago, when I was
trying to gain support for a veterans bill HR 1198, which died a slow death in the house. It would have enabled vets to sue the company's which they worked as slave labor in. I'm 52 now and he never talked about it till I was 47 and asked him to write his story. Obviously, I had to edit it down for this forum. Thanks for writing.
