Have just read the interview with Joan Rose and found it fascinating. What a great idea (kudos to Heather) to present these profiles -- not just of the famous, but of ordinary citizens who've lived through so many of this century's amazing events.To Joan Rose who riveted bomber bays... and to my father who packed parachutes... you were truly "The Greatest Generation". We all owe you so much.Jeanie
Thanks for the kudos Jeanie, but the idea originated from Mac Greer, the Fool's Radio Show producer. He was pretty helpful in pulling this special together. Heather
Joan Rose - you are a beautiful person. Your story is touching. I too went through those times and can relate! I wish today's young people were more patriotic and less cynical but I guess it is too late for that.My nomination for greatest person of the century would be the American GI...no question about it!
