Earlier this year, I happen to notice,  when I parked at
the local Walmart, there was a car with the license plate
“St Lo”.  I had often followed it on painting days from
Blue Hill.    One day, we arrived at the same time. 
I approached the elderly gentleman in the
store and introduced myself, saying I had noticed his
license plate many times.  He got teary and proceeded
to tell me of why he had the plate … in honor of those
who died in that battle.  He said it was one of the worst
times he ever could remember in his life.
