Many of you will remember when I wrote about my home town of Del City, Oklahoma a few weeks ago and how we were playing the Remember When thread on Facebook.   One of our hometown heroes was Bob Kalsu, who I grew up with in my church, and  in my community of Del City, Ok.

I have attached a link to Sports Illustrated that is the story of  the first hero from the Vietnam War who also played in the NFL.  http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1023026/index.htm.

Many of us remember Bob and his kind spirit and we named the Del City High School Stadium after him.  He will always be a hero for many of us in Del City.

  1. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one today.

    • This is a theme from Word Press, but my personal writing. Bob Kalsu was a friend that I grew up with in my church in Del City and we all lost a hero when was killed. I think you for your kind words.
