Ron Foster on Mar 17, 2018

I've known Al for some 20 years, his son Ron being one of my best friends. He was always a class act and just one of the finest guys I've ever known. Remembering also his contribution during world War II. Those guys saved the world, and their memories will forever be enshrined among the true heroes of our civilization. Ron Foster
