In honor of Navy Week in Sioux Falls, this is the story of a kid from the tiny town of Veblen, S.D., who went to college thinking he might want to be a pastor. Instead, after graduation he answered America’s call to serve and spent the next three decades protecting and defending her from the bad guys. He doesn’t have a cape but he can fly. And he is, without question, one of the good guys. Meet Lyle Bien, class of 1967, a real-life superhero. And read his remarks from Commencement 2012.
