|Let the memory of Arthur be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of Arthur Voecks, 28. Arthur proudly served his country in the US Army from January 23, 1942 to November 8, 1942, when he was Killed in Action. We will remember him forever.
Today is Veterans Day. There will be special a dedication today at the Vets Home which will honor in perpetuity The 3 Voecks brothers, WWII Vets with a bench in their honor. My Dad, a favorite uncle and another uncle, a purple heart recipient I only know from photos and stories. May their service and contribution always be remembered""
Art was the first soldier to be killed in action from the Norfolk area in WWII. He was awarded the Purple Heartl for his service. He was only 28 years old at his death. Since Art died so young, there are very few people alive who actually knew him; however, both of his brothers (Arnie and Gib) kept him alive in our memories."
