Submarine veteran is haunted by fateful Navy orders issued decades ago


Recommended Posts

MYSTIC, Conn. (Tribune News Service) — A spry 82-year-old, David Cornell has compiled abundant evidence of a life fully lived: his life.

It's all in a binder thick with certificates, patches, official correspondence and photographs, each page sheathed in protective plastic.

He's written his obituary, too, along with a list of who should be notified when he dies; some passages that should be spoken at his wake (and who should speak them); and instructions about how his ashes should be spread over a certain expanse of the Atlantic Ocean.
