Old soldiers paid tribute to their comrade Victor Whytsell, 88, yesterday before he was taken to his resting place above the West Fork Valley. Rev. Rick Metheney recalled words Whytsell waited to say near the end of his life: "So why can't our political leaders learn from their terrible wars, when people like Fritz and me (his former German enemy) can love one another? I've often thought if our leaders could spend ten minutes in combat, we wouldn't have many wars."
