Beyond the Standards

BY ROBERT C. KLICK

The Last Word column about the San Antonio CPA and his WWII hero father (JofA , Nov. 06, page 100) is the best article the JofA has published in my 20+ years of AICPA membership. So much of our profession and its topics by their very nature are extremely technical and, let’s face it, dry. It’s great to see beyond the exposure drafts and congressional tax proposals and experience the reality and rich history that make up the lives of our membership.

Thanks to Conrad for sharing and the JofA for publishing a great story.
