Last week my uncle and godfather passed away after a pretty good fight after his surgery at 91 yrs. He was buried yesterday.He was a WWII vet, this was something I never heard him speak of. Many thanks to the Honor Guard who showed up. Taps always gets me.
He was a terrific man and will be missed.

My Dad is a survivor of the Guadicanal battle of Iron Bottom Sound...5500 sailors died there. He is 92 and going down hill. He never talked about the war. I found out that his ships bell USS Meade DD602 is in Norfolk, and he was invited to view it by the Navy. Hate to lose these old timers . Give your family a hug for me...I will remember his sacrifice.
