Zd021. 1940 West Point yearbook, John wrote this:
It’s OK to add, I don’t think these will be in the book, and everything else will be on our free website, so no problem. Plus, it’s in the 1940 West Point yearbook, so it’s a public document, it’s simply a detail that is easy to overlook. Chester Britt is not in those photos.

Zd020. President F.D. Roosevelt congratulating the cadets in 1940. John Duresky wrote this:

Good Morning Karl,
Finally moved into our new home in New Mexico. Saw your writeup about FDR and thought you would appreciate this about him. I love all of Ken Burns’ documentaries, very detailed and fascinating from start to finish. Last one I watched was THE ROOSEVELTS Learned something in that film. Because of his polio, you will always see FDR bracing himself with one hand on something if he is standing. Note the page from Chester Britt’s 1940 West Point HOWITZER yearbook and FDR where I blew up his photo. Exactly as described in that documentary, a small detail I would have missed without the documentary. He fought through his pain to honor those new lieutenants by standing for them. America was fortunate to have him as our wartime leader.
