I was saddened to hear about the passing of John Madden, at age 85. One the all-time greats, he showed me the ropes during our brief football partnership. He was always kind and delightful. He can now join his former partner, Pat Summerall, in calling Super Bowls in heaven.
On this Veterans Day, I'd like to salute the nation's veterans for their service and sacrifice. We are so grateful to you. May God bless you all. Please allow me to share this story of when, as a child, I first learned the lesson we honor annually on Veterans Day.
