Veterans 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.
