Jerry Coleman Answered The Call

With the sad news of Jerry Coleman‘s passing, there will be a lot of reminiscing about a life very well lived.  Which is as it should be.  Jerry didn’t talk a lot about his military service, but he did open up to Proceedings, a US Naval Institute publication best understood as professional reading for many on active duty, in a series called Answer The Call.  FWIW, Bob Feller was also interviewed for this series of articles.

At the time of the piece (December 2009) I was a subscriber to the magazine.  I got permission from the publisher to re-post it on my old blog, a permission which I believe (fingers crossed) is still valid.  It ran in March 2010 (link included for the heck of it).  Today seemed a good day to republish it.
