Editor, Times-Union:
Thanks are due to Dr. Craig Hintz, Principal Troy Akers, Atheletic Director Dave Anson, teacher Dave Baumgartner, guidance Rick Swaim, whoever, for the service/convocation that took place at Warsaw Community High School on Veterans Day, 11/11/11. Don Beaty, one of some more than 300 survivors of the USS Indianapolis – sunk by a Japanese submarine – gave some vey realistic statements regarding his five-day battle seas – sharks, sailors and self. Former teacher at the high school, David Hoffert, stepped into the role of the emcee and did a fantastic job of filling in at the last minute. The music was the frosting.
