Anniversary overlooked

It's been an extremely busy time for me -- so much so that I failed to note an important anniversary a couple of weeks ago. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it!)

Thirty years ago -- on September 25, 1976 -- Red Faber died. He was 88.

He is buried in Acacia Park Cemetery in Chicago. I visited his gravesite a few months ago. His marker does not mention his 20-year, Hall of Fame career with the Chicago White Sox. Instead, it mentions his Navy service, which lasted less than a year.
