Today’s Star Spangled Salute honors 95-year old U.S. Army veteran Doug Harvey and a very special meeting he had with Sophie Tajch Klisman.   The other day Doug and Sophie met at her home, but it wasn’t the first time they met.  The first time they met Doug was a member of the Army and was involved in the 1945 liberation of the concentration camp where Sophie was being held.  Harvey said he couldn’t take credit for all the 15,000 guys where were there, to which Sophie replied, “But you were one of them and I’m very fortunate to meet you.”  Thank you Doug for your service.
