Today at church, we got to celebrate the 100th Birthday of one of our members, Al Chesser.
Al was the President of the United Transportation Union. If you've ridden on Amtrak, you can thank Al Chesser for its presence in our world today. He knew every president from Harry Truman to Jimmy Carter. Lyndon Johnson was one of his good friends. He rode on Air Force One, batted against Satchel Paige, and was born before World War I began.
I got the honor of attending Al's 100th birthday party Saturday evening.
And perhaps most impressively, Al just renewed his driver's license through the age of 104.
Al, thank you for a life well lived!
