I have witnessed numerous "Super Storms" and Hurricanes in my 77 years of existence. I was was up in Fort Devens, Massachusetts when "Diane" hit, and I and my two fellow radio operators decided to head to Trenton in my buddy John Wilkie's 1941 Chevy. We had just dropped off Mike Byers in Yonkers, N.Y. and headed further south as Diane headed further north. Fortunately, the angels that God appoints to watch over G.I.'s was riding shotgun. We managed to reach our destination after 3 extra hours of travel over flooded streets. So here I am 56 years later, ready to batten down the hatches for Hurricane "Irene" who is predicted to brush up against the east coast.
