    Thanks to Mr. Hanson for this article on the AFIP! I was stationed at Walter Reed as an ambulance driver from 1962 to 1963, and when not driving I had to work in the ER or ASO as it was known then. One of my duties was to take the deceased off the wards to the AFIP. I shall never forget the elevator that took a full minute to go from one floor to another, with the deceased on board. And, if it was a female, I needed a female escort. I loved that hospital and my duty there. Shall never forget bumping into Ike early one morning when on the way to X-ray with an injured man on a gurney, and he stopped me to inquire about the man. A very humble man he was.
    When driving back and forth from Florida to Vermont, I used to visit the wounded before they closed it up. I would like to know what has happened to the newer section which is not that old? They built that complex on top of where my barracks used to be. Also, in spite of the incident in 2007, I would like to see more articles regarding the history and the good the old hospital served in the caring and treatment of thousands of patients throughout its existence.
    I will miss it always, and may it not be forgotten in the public's eye!
    Thanks again, Steve and have a good day.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
