Today, United States Independence Day, you can be sure that World War II veteran Daniel Nadel will be reminiscing about the military exploits that won him medals including the Bronze Star for bravery and the French Legion of Honor.

Raised in Brooklyn, New York, where he pressed suits for 10 cents apiece in his father’s tailor shop, Nadel at 94 retains his deep voice and unlined face. He lives in Jerusalem with his wife, Shirley, whom he met under unusual circumstances.
