Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- July 2, 2010
D-Day veteran Bob Fuller spent some time at the Veteran's Knoll at Wyoming Cemetery, marking a quiet Fourth of July Independence Day celebration. A machine gunner in World War II, his group was the first to knock down a then-new Messerschmitt jet fighter. Times have changed but the wars go on; in the meantime this warrior spends his time in his garden, tending to his geraniums, enjoying the peace and security that Americans have won and nurtured for 234 years. Happy Fourth of July, folks.
