Great Grandfather - you have inspired my life with your service, first in the military and then as an officer. I have served as an assistant district attorney and now as a judge advocate in the Army. Your legacy carries on in your great great grandson, my son, who is named William after you and grandpa and dad! Never forgotten. All my love.
