Hello Sir, I never met you but I live in Shelby. At the park today my kids wanted a picture next to your memorial so we took one. I must admit that although I've live here for 6 years I've never taken the time to figure out who this memorial was for, until today. You were born just 2 years before me and gone much to soon. I looked you up online and I can tell you were and would have continued to be a great man! After being led to this page and reading the comments on here I felt the need to say thank you Sir for your sacrifice so my family can have the freedoms we do. I know you and many of your brothers in arms have payed much to great a price and none of you get the recognition you deserve. From one American to another, thank you for your service and sacrifice for this great country!
