Internet helping to bring older veterans together
Published 11/11/2010, The Daily Republic
Sometimes all a veteran needs is a little help from his friends.
That was the case with Ken Carlson, 76, of Mitchell, the longtime friend of Charlene and Steve Larson, of Mount Vernon.
A former crew chief and aircraft mechanic who served stateside during the Korean War era, Carlson recently used the Internet — with Charlene’s help — to find a long-lost Air Force buddy, Paul Ward, of Wichita, Kan.
