Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Lieutenant William E. Gruber

I would like to thank the City of Jacksonville for honoring my grandfather. This was brought to my attention by 2 men associated with the organizing of the ceremony. I had a previously arranged obligation on that day and was unable to attend. I was told that his lineage had been traced to my family and he was my great great grandfather. Again, thank you for honoring him.
