Lee Klein

Lee Klein was Navy pilot in the War and served in the Pacific Theatre.  He had several brothers and brothers-in-law who also served,  and at one time, eight young men in his family were in the military, directly involved in combat.  Stories like this really bring home the effort and sacrifices made to ensure our freedom and survival as a nation.   Lee and I met on a flight two years ago, when I was a guardian with my friend, Charles Moon. We sat by each other on the flight home and discovered our mutual regard for Lee Bailey, an icon of style, good living, and fine food.  Not only is Lee and American hero, he is a great cook, fine raconteur, and good friend.  It is a privilege to know him.
