Quotes

...We met a man who was dairying in California, and that's what we decided to do: Live in California and milk cows. We made a trip to Idaho and said, "We could save up some money and go to Idaho and start farming" which we did
During a phone conversation on Friday afternoon, Caporaso recalled the best day of the war — the day he was freed. " We were in Stalag seventeen, in Austria, and the Russians kept coming closer. The Germans were afraid, so they split us into four groups of about 500 each and marched us to Czechoslovakia. It was quite a walk."
He said: "I'm very thrilled to get the medal, which follows a lot of correspondence between me and various ministers and MPs."
"All my friends' dads were professionals: They were doctors or lawyers. [My dad] sold clothes to black people. Back then it wasn't too cool. My dad made a good living. But it's cool that 50 years later, after my dad is gone, people around the world know him. His obit was in the New York Times . People from around the world know the Lanskys. Now it's cool. We've met all these people and lived this story. The tables turned. I know Robert Plant. Back then, young people were into the BritishBritish Invasion. But they never witnessed what I saw on the street."
