Servicemen Feature

I want to thank the Live, Love, Dream group for featuring “Servicemen”. I ended up staying at work for the last week as I couldn’t make it home due to the piles of snow and ice we have had so I missed my feature, I am grateful just the same .

My grandfathers service was just amazing! They performed the 21 gun salute, the flag was flown at half staff, the honor guard (I think that was their title) did the flag folding ceremony. My grandfather was in Pearl Harbor on the USS Aylwyn on Dec 7, 1941 and served for 30 years in the Navy after that. This was a great honor for us to go to Hawaii and observe this day of service, Dec 7, 2008. He was one of the last few survirors remaining from Pearl Harbor and is now at rest on the USS Utah, which I am told is to eventually become a memorial such as the USS Arizona. From my heart, I sincerely thank you.
