Tudor was a combat medic in the infantry during World War II, serving in the Pacific. He never spoke about the hardships he suffered during the two years overseas until he heard Taps being played at a funeral while visiting the cemetery. He broke down and cried, but that broke the ice. After that he would mention some situations, but he still didn't like recalling them. He would get angry when reading about self-serving politicians doing stupid things. He would say, " Is that what those boys died for?" He would get teary-eyed thinking of the boys he couldn't help during combat. He could still see their faces. He died 8/24/2013 at 91.
