Today no car, but a small USN ship from WWII (Not the present subject ship)
I wanted to mention it on the actual Memorial Day, but I held it off until late. Our Families were fortunate. Sherry’s brother ‘Lefty’ Harris (USMC) and my Brother ‘Junior’ Darnell (USN) served in some fierce battles in the South Pacific, including Iwo Jima; both returned home, Lefty was wounded on Iwo.
But of all our kin including cousins and uncles also returned.
However my BIL Sonny’s family lost a son, Sonny's brother “A.G. Helms Jr." He was lost at sea when his ship was sunk by a German Torpedo. YOU can imagine, not a grave, and the body was never recovered. The family only had memories and a Flag of the country for which he gave his life.
Yes Memorial Day does mean a lot.
