Today's Daily Goodbye

By Washington Post editors

Today's Daily Goodbye features some remarkable men.

Kermit Tyler was the radar officer who told folks not to worry about the large "blip" that was spotted on the radar. Only problem was it was Dec. 7, 1941, and the office he was in was at Pearl Harbor. He went down in history as "inattentive" -- but as in many cases, there was far more to his story. Fred Bachrach survived being held as a Dutch POW in a Japanese camp during World War II. Franck Achtien helped Jews escape the Holocaust and saw the privations that come with hunger.

More on these men in Post Obituary Writer Patricia Sullivan's Daily Goodbye.
