A catastrophic fire and a tour in Vietnam led to a reverence for life | Larry Sorce

Larry Sorce’s reverence for life is linked to an experience that happened more than 60 years ago. He survived a fire that ignited just before dismissal on December 1, 1958 at Our Lady of the Angels school in Chicago. The blaze engulfed the building and claimed the lives of 92 children and 3 nuns.

A dozen years later Larry began his tour of duty in Vietnam as an Army supply officer. The post insulated him from the hazards of war. His good fortune only deepened his gratitude.

After a working career in Milwaukee, today Larry calls Nashville, Tennessee home. He continues his outreach to veterans and others offering support however and whenever he can.
