R2 FOUNDATION to begin interviews of World War Two Veterans

Thanks to Col. Steve Alexander (Ret.) for making the R2 Foundation (R2 as in R squared, as in RR, as in Richard Randall) a reality.  The purpose of the Foundation is to sponsor events that will benefit military charities and non-profits such as The Homefront Cares, USO, Wounded Warrior Project, etc.  It will also help educational non-profits preserve American history and pass it on to future generations.

The first "official" action was taken Sunday when I interviewed a World War Two veteran who served aboard the U.S.S. Lexington.  Richard Jorgenson was a naval pilot who flew the Douglas Dauntless SBD Dive Bomber.  He was aboard the ship when it was sunk during the battle of Coral Sea.  I will post the interview in the next few days.
