|U.S.S. Ticonderoga in World War II|
On this particular day, Ed wore his "Ticonderoga" hat to the doctor's office where he was spotted by Larry's wife. Larry had accompanied his wife to the doctor, so the reunion then took place. Both men were flabbergasted that they had found a shipmate of their generation.
Here is a link to a news story done by Central Florida's Channel 13:
I must tell you that Ed is my father-in-law. I recently purchased the hat at the VA clinic in Orlando and presented it to him. Now I'm really glad I thought to do so.
