Dear Everyone, Thank you for all of the amazing things you have said in Memory of my Great-Grandfather. He died very young and he would have been 100 this year. He was a WW2 Veteran and was at Schofield Barracks during Pearl Harbor. He never got to see his Grandchildren, One of which followed in his footsteps and is now a police officer.
My Great-Grandfather's name will always be engraved for the great service and sacrifice he gave his country.
