Thursday, June 8, 2006 | Keith Taylor’s “Wild Bill” article today was so good I had to send that page on to a ton of others (many of them veterans who will fully appreciate every word).
The gritty, wonderful, tough but pithy humor of the American service man has been celebrated all over the world during and since WW II, and it has never been more hilariously apparent than in Wild Bill’s seven word communication to his commander, as brilliantly recreated by Taylor, “SIGHTED CRUISER. CRUISER JOINED SUB FLEET. HAULING A.” Thanks for a wonderful read and a great lift to my day.
