One of the Tombstones in this cemetery belongs to my father. My father served overseas in World War II. He never talked about his service to his country or what he did when he was in campaigns in France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Africa. We respected his wishes and never asked.
He had great respect for his flag, his country and his fellow man. He was very proud to have served during a time of conflict and it was always his wish to be buried among his fellow soldiers with whom he helped to defend his country. That wish was granted on September 24, 1984.
Today, I take time to pause, remember and honor those brave men and women who have served and still serve our great country. Their sacrifice grants us the freedom to travel freely wherever we choose. Let them never be forgotten.
And, as always in the words of my Father, "That's it for Today".
