Just found this man's grave by accident and figured he was K.I.A. Wow. He is a piece of history probably soon to be forgotten like so many of our fallen heros. Eternal rest grant upon to him Lord and your perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and all the souls of the faithfully departed rest in peace.Amen
