Louis’s friend Vic Henry

Louis says, “Vic Henry was a year or two behind me at Lindsey Wilson. His father was the College president. They lived in a house down the hill from the college. We were visiting them on Dec. 7, 1941 when we lived in Burkesville. As we left to go home someone said Pearl Harbor had been bombed. First I ever heard of Pearl Harbor. Last I heard, Vic was a dentist at Russel Springs (or nearby) Kentucky.”
