Veteran’s Day. Lots of Vets on These Mean Streets.
Hammett, two World Wars, interred in Arlington. The late great James Crumley. The great Kent Anderson. Plenty more.
And of course Charles Willeford — also interred in Arlington — who gets a spread today on The Daily Beast courtesy the wordsmithing of Jason Siegel. Nice tribute, in salute to one of this country’s most interesting writers, a career Army/Army Air Corps sergeant — and tank platoon commander in the Battle of the Bulge.
