    Jake McNiece just passed away about 3 months ago at the age of about 92. Jake was quite a character. I would encourage anyone to just Google his name.

    Last year (I believe) he was awarded the Highest Honor from the French Government. His story inspired the movie "The Dirty Dozen."

    He was a great family friend and actually delivered meals to shut-ins almost up to the time he died.
