William Ferguson Caldwell died 19 years ago. He was a U.S. Army WWII veteran who fought at Normandy and the Battle of the Bulge. He was a father, and the husband of Dorothy Caldwell.
More than a decade before his death, according to his wife, he did a stint at Malcolm Randall VA Medical Center, in Gainesville.
“He was there for a while,” Caldwell said. “I said (to him), ‘When you get out of here, we’re gonna’ volunteer.”
That was 29 years ago, and Caldwell, 91, of Cross City, hasn’t stopped volunteering yet.
