The older gentleman on the right is an American hero. His name is Earl "Blue" Archer. I met him in 2004 on a mountain in Germany, on an A.G. Edwards trip. This pic was taken in Jamaica in my hotel room at a book signing I organized with a few friends. Blue was a torpedo bomber pilot in WWII. He is written about in the book "The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors" by James Hornfischer. He is a great American and I am proud to call him my friend.
