While at a wedding last night I had the pleasure of sitting next to a 90 year old gentleman, he looked like he could Sammy Davis Jr's brother. Learned that this gentleman starting riding motorcycles at age 15 when he purchased a 1939 Indian from a dealer in Bloomfield NJ, as he did not know how to ride when he picked up the motorcycle he drove it home in 2nd gear. At age 16 he enlisted in the navy obviously lying about his age. He served in Pearl Harbor and through out the pacific theater! He drove motorcycles while in the service, he told me that the military Harleys where different from his Indian and he had to learn to deal with the different shifter and clutch set up. After serving for 6 years he returned to NJ to raise a family. He shared many great stories with me throughout the evening, that old dude could dance! I think he danced with every woman there and was loving every minute of it! Rare that you have the privilege of hearing first hand accounts of military service from one of the members of the greatest generation!
