  1. This is my grandfather and it’s a wonderful thing to be able to see the specifics of his fight in WWII. I have a picture of him in his Marine Corps uniform and would like to send it to you to update the picture portion. Thank you so much

  2. As of today, 13 years ago Papa passed. We miss him everyday . Jessica was the light if his life. He was a proud Marine and he taught us right from wrong and to never give up. Lazy was not an option. Love you Dad, Kathy
