Somber reprint from 1970

Tom Suchan
Somehow it seems appropriate that I end this Veterans Day with a reprint of a 1970 Veterans Day piece by Tom Suchan, a former BJ editor who passed away Oct. 2 in Wichita, Kansas.

After 13 years at Ol’ Blue Walls, Tom went to Ohio Magazine as executive editor, then in 1978 to the Wichita Eagle.

In 1991, he retired from newspapers even though he was only 49.

The rest of his life was devoted to volunteering and writing a column for the parish monthly newspaper.

I think Tom’s 1970 effort is worth another salvo to wind up Veterans Day.
