In 1995 I brought a friend to campus for the SC game. The man was a retired marine who had just retired from his second career. He told me his dream was to see a home ND game before he died. He was a combat veteran and a real tough guy. At the luncheon on friday he cried when the band came marching in after Holtz spoke. That night we ran into John Lujack and Leon Hart at dinner-two idols of his--we went over and said hello. He was in awe. The game of course was classic and at dinner saturday night he held hands with his wife and told me that with the exception of the birth of his children the weekend was the best experience of his life.
