RIP, Sir, and thank you for your service.
One of the formative events of my life was landing my first job at age 16 in a place that employed a number of World War II vets part-time. I really learned a lot from those guys that shaped my worldview.
RIP. Thank you for serving.
I saw a quick video posted within the week where an elderly gentleman, who was walking and wearing a military cap, stopped to salute the American flag. Now we see people making millions criticizing our past. Thank you to the true heroes.
God rest his soul and give comfort to those who knew and loved him.
Sorry for your loss.
Bump to a hero...
They’re not making any more of these fine men either, I fear.
Thanks for sharing his story brother.
He gave his all. Bless him.
Thank you for sharing his story. Heavenly Father, help us to never forget this great generation.
Prayers for you in your loss, and prayers of thankfulness for this great man and his lifelong service.
Your cousin was shot down on January 5th, 1944. My uncle was the navigator on a B-17 and was shot down on January 11th, one of three survivors from the crew of ten. He also spent over a year in a POW camp.
One can barely imagine what it would be like to be in a POW camp through D-Day and on to the end of the war in Europe. I regret never having had much chance to know my uncle.
RIP. Condolences on the loss of your relative.
Here is information on your cousin’s plane:
I am so sorry for your loss. He was an extraordinary person.
