Last night I knocked on the door of a gentleman who served on the USS Wisconsin during the Korean War. He was full of stories about his travels abroad, around the country, and even here in Chester. He and and his wife are the proud original owners of their 1960's home.
I was so in awe of the guy, I decided to ask only for his consideration (and not his outright vote), but he cut me off mid-sentence. He said he'd be voting for me, no need to ask. It was such a great moment, and I've been thinking about him all morning.
