    This is a great story of the life of West Point's Oldest Living Graduate. It is an intimate story about his great challenges growing up on a small farm in Pennsylvania, his struggles in the South Pacific during World War 2 and his life long love affair with his wife Helen and the game of golf. A wonderful book about a life of the luck and love of this 105 year old retired Army Lieutenant General who shot his age more than 2000 times.
