A great American by the name of Paul Hornig passed away on Monday. He served in the Army at Normandy during D-Day and was captured as prisoner at the Battle of the Bulge. He went on to work on the Manhattan Project, an adviser to three U.S. presidents, and President of Brown University. I find it interesting that Huffington Post neglects to mention his service in WWII. Or any talk of the Army at all. Forget the cush university job, the man served his country. Is this not a great honor?
Wow, nevermind. Just before publishing this post, I realized that the Yahoo search engine sent me to Paul Hornig when it was Donald F. Hornig who had just died. I forgive you Huff Po. I blame Yahoo. They have hundreds of links mixing up the names, like the below:
Paul, Donald, what is in a name? Paul Hornig, thank you for your service. Donald F. Hornig, thank you for your service as well. Both great men, you are. (The title of this post is taken directly from Yahoo. It should read: Donald F. Hornig Dies at 92. I’ll leave it to honor Paul, he passed away recently as well.)
