The Gift of Life: 24,550 Extra Days

Herman Clemenson lived 24,500 after Sgt. Leroy Johnson saved his life on Dec. 15, 1944.

The place was Leyte Island, Philippines.

The story is one for the ages.

A word from Curt

I’m on Day 9 in Aga Kahn Hospital in Nairobi, Kenya.  My condition is slowly improving as the doctors seek to isolate the bug in my gut.  I’ve named it “Smaug the Dragon.”

Africans have a hard time believing there are villages in America.  They’ve watched too much TV and American music videos to believe otherwise.
