The 101st Airborne Division Association is asking its members and other Screaming Eagles veterans to step up and help one of their own — a 90-year-old D-Day veteran who nearly died as a result of a brutal home invasion last month.
Bob Strait of Tulsa, Okla., was hospitalized after a vicious March 14 robbery that killed his wife, 85-year-old Nancy Strait. She was beaten and raped in the attack.
The couple, who met on a blind date on Thanksgiving Day 1946, had been married for 65 years.
Police have one suspect in custody, but they believe as many as four others took part in the home invasion. . .
