This was my Great Grandfather. That day in 1933 had a ripple effect down through the ages on my family as all families feel when one of theirs gets taken. Grandpa grew up without a Dad and Dad grew up without a Grandpa.

God bless those that choose a life of service and sacrifice and thanks to this site for remembering the ones who gave all.
