William Pool is turning 99 years old on Jan. 13, a milestone most of us will never obtain. It is an achievement he has earned. I met with Pool in November, intending to make him a focus of our Veterans Day paper, but he had a story that needed something more; reaching 99 was a point to celebrate, his service in the military was short but impactful, and his family background is fascinating, so the paper decided to wait and tell his entire story, not just the WWII epic. What better time to share his tale than for his birthday? more

When I was little I could play with my set of Matchbox cars in the morning, have a Barbie party with some friends in the afternoon, then play dress up and pretend we are the girlfriends of the en vogue boy band by night. I loved to go to Grandma’s farm and frolic through the land, having imaginary scenarios of dancing with a prince just to have that same prince be bested by my tree-climbing prowess. more
