At 92, Don Singlestad is writing a book, "Fighting Fool," recalling his experiences during World War II that led to his becoming the most decorated non-commissioned officer of the 34th Division of the Red Bull Infantry.


Come September, yet another chapter will unfold when Singlestad travels to Vernio, Italy for the dedication of a road honoring the Red Bulls.

He'll be wielding scissors this time (for ribbon cutting), not a gun.
