The photo on page four of your November issue is my husband, Forrest Heistermann. Indeed, Mr. Duncan never asked the man his name, as he did not ask the names of any of the men in his photos. Forrest recalls having his picture taken and making the comment “Give me tomorrow.” He is a proud member of the Chosin Few, survivors of the Chosin Reservoir.

We hope you enjoy our work.
