"Nothing Dramatic" Karl Blake's War Story

“Dr. Karl E. Blake never planted a flag at Iwo Jima or stormed the beaches of Normandy. He did nothing dramatic, but he did do something extremely important, as did thousands of Americans like him who fought the battle for post-war civilized society. Blake’s wartime training allowed him to save numerous lives after the war, far more than he might have saved in combat. Is there a Karl Blake in your family, on your street, at your church? Talk to him—or her. Record the story. Get it on-record. As Dr. Blake says, ‘Pretty soon, none of us are going to be around to talk about it.’”
In “‘Nothing Dramatic’—Karl Blake’s War Story” (792 words), professor of political science and executive director of The Center for Vision & Values at Grove City College—Dr. Paul Kengor—prepares for Veterans Day by telling the story of a retired surgeon and member of the World War II generation from Wexford, Pennsylvania."
