L-Rod Petty, War II Hero

On June the 10th the Dalton Daily Citizen did a story about my mother's brother, Roy Petty (1921-2000).  His real name was William Leroy Petty but he had several nicknames that followed him to his dying days:  "Roy" (family), "L-Rod" (war buddies), and "Bill" (everybody else).  I knew this story was coming soon - I expected it to be timely on June the 6th when Roy made such a fighting impression, but it was not printed until 4 days later.
