Like President Trump, I’ve never served in the military. Unlike President Trump, both my grandfathers served in the military, during World War…

Bill Jones went to paradise for 13 months in the mid-1950s, and it wasn’t until many years later, when he and others were finally released from their vows of secrecy, that he found out what a hell it really had been.
