The triple war hero Merle Mulder who was a combat veteran of WWII, Korea and Viet Nam passed away this past week a his San Luis Obispo home, with his wife Maria at his side.
Merle was a quite man a bomber pilot who was at Tinian Island when the Atomic bombs where launched, he flew bombing missions over Japan, after the war he was called up for the Korean War, then again in the early stages of the Viet Nam war. He was a combat veteran of three wars who served our Nation with honor and distinction.
He was the little man on the scooter who rode downtown everyday to met with friends at West End coffee or Peet's coffee. Merle was a patriot and war hero who never spoke of the horrors of three wars but to a select few dear friends. I shall miss him greatly.
