Bud Anderson, America's last World War II 'triple ace,' dies at 102

I meet Bud twice, both at District Boy Scout Eagle Scout Courts of Honor.

As down to earth of a guy you'll ever meet. Both of his speeches to the boys gave me goose bumps. He lived just up the hill from me in Auburn California.

At my son's Eagle Scout District recognition he handed out copies of his book, custom signed to each boy. I noticed he had extra copies and I asked him for a copy signed to me. He looked at me and said "your a bit old to just be getting your Eagle Scout aren't you?". Needless to say I didn't get a copy.

For those that want to look it up the title is: To Fly and Fight: Memoirs of a Triple Ace.


Rest in Peace Bud, you mattered.
Buy it nice or buy it twice.

 Thru the years I've been fortunate to have known several WWII heros. They earned the title of "the greatest generation to ever walk the earth"

 To this day I'm glued to the TV whenever there is a WWII documentary on
We Must Never Forget Our Veterans....God Bless Them All !!


There's nothing wrong with a few "F's" on your record....Food, Fun, Flowers, Fishing, Friends, and Fun....to name just a few !
