Today is Veteran's Day
Tomorrow may be the day we observe today's holiday, yet today our local newspapers honor the men and women of the past and present who have fought for us. Here are their stories:
- Steve Lopez takes his weekly LA Times Sunday column and dedicates it to telling the story of Sgt. Maj. Jesse Acosta, who lost his sight, taste and smell in Iraq. Lopez follows Acosta as he commutes on the bus in Los Angeles.
- Daily News columnist Dennis McCarthy profiles West Hills resident, Charlie Mykietyn, a tank commander during World War II who "should have been killed 10 times over himself" as he had been through D-Day and the Battle of the Bulge.
