Veterans Day 2012

This blog is endebted to the work of J. Eric Holmes, and today on Veterans Day I'd like to mention his military service in the US Marine Corp, which included two years in Korea. The above picture of his gravestone above was recently posted on-line here.

More personally, I remember my late father, who served in the Navy, including two years as a Seabee in Vietnam during the war and as a reservist for many years after; his uncle "Fritzi", who was killed during fighting in the Pacific in WWII; and my maternal grandfather who served in the Army in the Pacific during WWII.
