Our country singer knew Johnny Cash

We have bands who come to our place and perform for us old retired folks.

This one older Western singer kept looking at my photo on our large wall where we have a sign on it that says, “Remember Our Vets.”

At break time I talked to him. He served in the Air Force many years ago and was with Johnny Cash during radio school, and they served in Germany together. Johnny talked about me training him.

One of the other players in the band walked over to see my photo and the words that were written with the photo. He said to me, “Boy, you never had any trouble finding girls, did you?” Everyone laughed their heads off.

This four-piece band comes here about four times a year. They play all the old tunes we love to hear.
