The theme for our NOVEMBER breakfast was a Veterans Day Celebration which was embraced and supported by a large patriotic ROMEO group. We were honored and privileged to have Mr. Paul Crawford with us. Mr. Crawford shared his incredible experience as a World War II Flying Tigers fighter pilot which included being shot down over Japanese occupied China--and his miraculous return to safety. To top it off, he shared his amazing trip back to China this year arranged by the Chinese Government along with his surviving comrades to be honored and thanked for their service on behalf of the Chinese. Paul graciously shared the many priceless gifts of appreciation he brought back with him. Our thanks to Julian Black for coordinating the meeting. FYI, Paul was featured in the Living Section of the November 11 Veterans Day AJC thanks to Jack Miller.

As an added bonus, Brigadier Marine General (Ret) and Mayor Elect, Denny Shortal, also joined us---joining Paul also as a decorated fighter pilot. This was a meeting we will remember and treasure for a long time.
