Final Thought

 

Perhaps few outside the BVA family could imagine a 101-year-old blind Navy veteran living independently in his own house in Wareham, Massachusetts.

Such is the case with an alert-as-ever Charlie Wilson, a member of the Rhode Island/Southeast Massachusetts Regional Group. Charlie celebrated the 101st milestone on November 17 of last year.
