    Jeanne – thank you for a very timely story.

    I saw the fuenral when I was 10 years old and alwasy remembered that horse, as did the TV commentators. I saw the funeral again last night on C-SPAN and saw Black Jack pull, twist and walk sidewasy for the entire route.

    For the soldier I knew back then how hard it was. For Andy Carlson, collectively we should get him something for such a tough job.

    I love your quirky take on everything- I have been a fan for years. I could not imagine a more perfect person to interview my father, PFC Arthur Carlson. Thank you. I loved your article.
