With a heavy heart, my much beloved Father in Law 92 years old has passed on after sharing dinner with us on Christnas Day.

Saul was in the 320th Infantry in the 35th Infantry Division. He fought at St. Lo, Mortian, amd was part of Patton'e command sent North to relieve Bastogne. He recieved the following medals for his service: 2 Silver Stars, a Bronze Star and 2 Purple Hearts. Had enough points to be sent home just after we crossed the Rhine,

My youngest daughter is a 2nd Lieut. RN in the US Army stationed at Fort Hood and joined to honor her Grandfather's service to his country, and to give back for the treatment he received while wounded. Luckily we faced Time her today. So she was able to speak with him right after dinner. He passed on, during the ride home.

I'm sorry for your family's loss. At least the gentleman must have had a full life. It's a shame he had to go on Christmas.

Correction, if you please sir. I could think of no better date to "go home." My condolences to you and your family sir. Bravo Zulu Mr. Joseph. Godspeed and Fair Winds home. I speak for many who don't know you but are grateful when I say, May we be worthy of your service sir.

Gentlemen thank tou and I will pass the condolences onto my wife, and all the other members of the family.

Tom Bryant,
I agree with you as if he could pick a day to move on he would have wanted to be with all his family prior to it. Plus we'll never have a Christmas gathering without a rememberance of him.
