My grandfather recently passed away. He served with the 5th Marine Dvision and fought on the island of Iwo Jima.
He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.
At his funeral, some local veterans gave him a 21 gun salute. Very powerful.
He will be missed.
We are very sorry for your loss. I knwo we have spoken on Facebook before. WE hope to add your grandfathers photo to our Victory Ride poster. Look for updates on FB. May he R.I.P.
Hi Robert. Sorry for your loss. My Dad was in the 4th Div. He is 89 now and in NY. Him and some family are going to the event on 5/19. It bothers him that so many of his friends and heroes are passing so quickly. Thanks and be proud.
