Remembering Our Fallen Heroes
On this Memorial Day 2020, we remember all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can experience the freedom that we have today in this great country. My deepest respects go out to the loved ones of those we have lost.
I would like to take a moment to recognize my great uncles:
1st Lt Robert Powers, US Army Air Corps, WW2. 40th Fighter Squadron. 1x Aerial Victory. 2x Purple Hearts. Killed In Action 15 Feb 1945 Taiwan
Private Leo Powers, US Army, WW2. 290th Infantry. Killed In Action 1 Apr 1945 Germany
I often heard my grandmother speak of her brothers when I was growing up. Today I realize how difficult of a time that must have been for the family. I dream of a world where no family will experience these tragic losses.
