You Never Knew

Alan Hemberger on the right, died recently.

He anchored at WDAU (now WYOU) in the 80's, well before my time, and I never met him.  I do remember thinking he was really good.

Hemberger's family said Alan suffered a heart attack in Massachusetts.  I watched an obituary produced by one of Hemberger's old stations in San Antonio.  It noted that he was a Vietnam veteran who suffered from post traumatic stress disorder, and it became worse as the years went on.

Veterans Day is two weeks away.  Take a moment to remember Alan Hemberger and all the people like him who carried the scars of war long after the fighting was over.
