I looked up your son on the internet and found him to be well liked and respected, a loving husband and devoted father. Quite a legacy. I'm so sorry that he lost his life at such a young age. The military has been an important part of my own family, with my father and his five brothers each serving in the various divisions. My dad was wounded during the Korean War when he was just 18. He had a short Army career, as he was disabled for the rest of his life. His Purple Heart and military flag hang in my mother's living room. (he passed away several years ago from cancer) He was fiercely patriotic, and chose his burial plot here in our small town of North Liberty in the local cemetery next to the Armed Forces Memorial. That is where I have chosen to place your son's picture (at the memorial)....it is special to me because it is near my father and sister's graves, and the memorial is a tribute to the military, which is forever linked with your son.
Thank you for giving me and my family an opportunity to learn about your son, and to honor his memory. He gave everything for our freedom, and we plan to live in such a way that it reflects our deep appreciation.
