Ben Mankiewicz put up a three-fer story on journalism’s BFF HuffPo the other day. Not only was it about Memorial Day, not only was it about Father’s Day, but it was also about World War II.

Mankiewicz talks about getting his dad to spill the beans on his accomplishments in World War II – and how his dad simply never talked about “it” because he thought he was just doing his job.

Ben’s got a great re-telling of some of his favorite gems from his father, and it’s worth a read if you’ve got a military father who’s convinced that his loose lips could sink ships.

(Nowadays, it’s “a loose Twitter makes people bitter.”)
