Good News: June 4, 2010

The Good News from June 4 is now available for download:

This issue includes a detailed profile of Ed Williams’ (oldest living veteran in Wellesley) experience in World War II, as well as an article adapted from Margaret Schwarzer’s Pentecost Sunday sermon.

“There wasn’t going to be any war. That was the thought,” Williams said. “Anyone reading the papers should have known better. And I think Roosevelt did.”

Most of his first year in the service was spent at Camp Edwards. “We went down to the Carolinas on maneuvers,” Williams said. “We came back on a Sunday evening in December to be greeted with the fact that Pearl Harbor had been bombed that morning. That changed the idea of being in just one year.”
