I just found this site and am grateful for it. It is such a wonderful way to remember some of the best of our society, those who sacrifice for others, for people they may not even know.

Thank you to one of those men, my 3-times great uncle. Uncle August, we may never have met, but I am sincerely grateful for your service.
