Mac Day was my great-great grandfather. His son, Alexander Day, was my great grandfather. His son, Alexander D. Day, Jr. was my grandfather. Both Mac and Alex died in the line of duty. I thank them for their service. I feel so sad for great-great grandmother Charlotte Jane Day to lose both her husband and son.
