  10. So young! So long ago! My dad fought in Korea. He is not over it yet. I am sorry that your aunt and uncle never had the closure that having his remains would be. A blessed Memorial Weekend to you.

  12. This was very interesting to me, not just the Oklahoma connection but your second link takes us to information that your cousin is recognized at the Honolulu Memorial. My plan is to go there, Hawaii, to see if my uncle's name appears, he died off of Saipan during WWII. Wonderful photo!

  19. Hi There, Happy Pentecost today. Hope you are wearing your RED....

    Happy Memorial Day Weekend to you and yours also. Let's never forgot those who died for our freedoms... God Bless them ALL, including your cousin.

    Sorry I haven't been around much. George and I have a couple of new online programs (one is a Food Journal and one a fitness/exercise program) --so we are VERY busy increasing our exercise and getting healthier... That's my excuse and I'm sticking' with it... ha ha

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  20. I was fortunate enough to have the young man I loved come home to me. He came home on March 3rd and we were married the day I graduated from high school on June 18, 1954. I was so lucky. Many were not. I honor your cousin...I am so very sorry he never returned. So many wars and so much sadness. Pat went on to fight in Vietnam , three tours and came home safe though on the front lines. I was blessed..and this time so were our seven babies.
    Much love to you and thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting! I appreciated it.
