Berwyn vet remembers meeting Lord Mountbatten
BERWYN – It was a cold, December Sunday, and a young Ed Karasek of Cicero was in his first year at Morton Junior College, studying at home and listening to the Bears game on the radio.
Then, something happened that eventually would lead to a pilot’s uniform, a seat in a cockpit and a chance conversation with a British war hero. It would change his life forever.
Karasek, 92, who has served as a Berwyn Park District commissioner since 1956, remembers well what would come to be known as a date that would live in infamy.
