Might be a better idea to have pictures with you, and see if he wants to share after you break the ice as it were.

I'm not being a wus, different aspects can sneak up on these guys and bush wack them.

Also be prepared to re org any info you get. As you chat about "stuff" it will trigger recollections that are not always in chronological order.

Had a few informal chats with gents at the military shows that I have been to and some, but not all, have had a flashback style event that has visibly upset the guys. Just give them a chance to blow past it or accept the fact they have the right to terminate the discussion at any point.
