Story of Service


My grandfather will always be remembered by all of his grandchildren for marching in the Gettysburg Memorial Day Parade in his full WWI uniform. He was very proud of his service to his country.

He became a mechanic in the 74th Aero Squadron which later changed it's name to the 486th Aero Squadron.

He was an avid outdoorsman, loving to fish and hunt until his death in 1978.
