Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- July 4, 2014
D-Day vet Irv Smolens, long a resident (with wife Edith) of Melrose, stepped out of line as President Barack Obama strode by during Veterans' Day exercises in Washington. Yes, this is the same Irv Smolens who, for many years, painted with words in the "Melrose Mirror" what he had seen and experienced ever since he had landed on French soil. At the Veteran's Day program, we believe the President's own cameraman caught our Irving as he boldly stepped forward, offered a hand to the President, saying something like, "Mr. President, I want to commend you for keeping our nation free from warfare" -- an editor's translation.
