With three decades in journalism, I can authoritatively state that public praise from a colleague is rare. And so I was humbled by longtime Providence Journal columnist Bob Kerr's praise for my post-9/11 veterans series published in the Journal today.
It is especially humbling, given Bob's service in Vietnam as a Marine -- and for years here, the voice of veterans of all ages. Bob also graciously also acknowledged the incredible videos by staff photographer John Freidah, wonderfully edited by Cecilia Prestamo, that accompany the series.
Series wraps up with Part Seven this Sunday and Part Eight on Monday, this Veterans Week. Two extraordinary stories (credit due the subjects I profile!), accompanied by two more extraordinary videos.
