That's the spirit, Bob! It takes courage AND driving skills to do that job; it's not as cushy as it may seem. Imagine seeing your fellow man wrecked up and being responsible for getting them through the streets of Paris to a hospital....

Great picture of Bob. Sadly, if you ask a star today to join the fight, they'd run the other way. Well, maybe not all of them, but I must say, most of them. The 40's generation was truly the "greatest" generation.
