He served in the military.
He did his duty. Nothing flashy, he'd say, nothing even heroic.
Others would disagree.
He never forgot his buddies who served with him and he never forgot his buddies who never made it back with him.
Even though he didn't have much money, he gave what he could to those he could. As much as he could.
And the more he made, the more buddies he helped. The more buddies' families he helped some more. Usually quietly. Always anonymously.
He was of that generation, the greatest generation, that did much but didn't talk much.
He doesn't move so fast anymore and still doesn't talk much anymore.
He lets his actions speak for themselves: big actions, big commitments and big donations. Quietly. Assuredly. Consistently.
Just like his generation: the greatest generation.
He represents so much more than the vast wealth he's now attained.
He's about a lot more than wealth and a lot "more than money."
You can read about him in my book out this week appropriately enough.
You can see him on my show as well.
