Elks Lodge – Nevada City

November 30th, 2013

General Chuck Yeager: I was invited to the Elks Lodge Thanksgiving dinner last night (Wed) to honor the veterans. I was the youngest there!

The oldest was a “GI Joe & Lilli” couple – both veterans; she, a nurse, now age 95, had nursed him, a wounded soldier, now age 94, back to health during World War II. And here they are together 70 years later. He told me they were shootin’ for 100.

The Elks asked me to say a few words. I was honored to do so, thanked the many veterans who were there and thanked the Elks Lodge for honoring them and giving us Thanksgiving dinner.
