Storm had many intresting stories. He was in the background of a few different photos in Time magazine. Or at least I'm pretty sure it was Time. It was during the Vietnam War. We was part of Reconosence and operated the radio for communications. He was in the middle of the action. One srtory had gurnades going off and him wishing his legs would follow when they pulled him away. Other stories had him and his squad throwing rocks at paper boats that they made waiting for orders.
One thing I will always remember was him trying to teach me a lesson on leaving my skateboard out in the front yard. Years later I was going through his storage shed and noticed this skateboard. I inquired about it and he reminded me that it was mine, but I never brought it up and he forgot. The funny thing is, I never had a skateboard. I do know it was a neihbor kids board by the painted fruit on the bottom. Good times.
