Robert Johnson finds link to wonderful local romance story

By Robert Johnson

Here is a wonderful story from the Stars and Stripes News about a 94 year old Retired Army Colonel from Columbia, KY, receiving end of life care at Ft. Belvoir Hospital.

It is also about a 73 year love story with he and his wife Eloise of Russell Springs, KY.

I saw it this morning in my news feed. I am retired from the military and I still receive military related news articles. So, I was surprised when I saw this lovely story about two once local people.

Here is a link to the story:

After a 73-year union, two hospital beds pushed together offer comfort to veteran and his wife

Thank you, Robert Johnson, Columbia, KY
