Ace Christensen is a veteran of W.W.II who was captured in the Philippines at the beginning of the war and survived unspeakable horrors and loss of comrades in Japan. As a small boy I loved his enthusiasm for life and selfless attitude. He was our mailman and later a bus driver. He lost his leg in an accident but it didn't stop him or dampen his spirit. He chaired a wonderful veteran's exhibit in the little town of Tremonton, Utah honoring those who served our country. Later I became a teacher and he spoke to my students on numerous occasions. He wasn't bitter about his captors and in fact during his life he served a mission for his church in Japan, serving the very people who had tortured him. What a guy! He is my hero and always will be!
