GOLIAD – John Caldwell still has quite a bit of fight left in him.

The 88-year-old veteran of World War II and the Korean War is one of the Goliad County’s most vocal residents when it comes to local government issues.

Caldwell is not afraid to voice his opinion during public comment at Goliad County Commissioners Court meetings or in the Advance-Guard’s “Letters To The Editor.”

“I’m 88 years old and I like to feel that I have the moral courage to stand up for what I believe in,” Caldwell said. “I may be the second John The Baptist - another ‘Voice In The Wilderness.’ ”
