Thank you.

Thanks for the link Radio! An impressive act of selfless respect for the fallen soldiers who fought in all of Americas conflicts. This is a very special family.

That is great. Like how he does his role call so their names are spoken at least once per year.

I love that he said it was a privilege when asked if it's his duty. Thank you for posting this.

What a remarkable family! Speaks of the depth of their dedication and a truly honourable way to acknowledge these sacrifices made on our behalf.


Mr Van Doren couldn't be more right in saying that so many servicemen lie forgotten. My club has a weekly dedication to remember those who served and died, pertinent to that particular week in our military history. I always feel both humbled and thankful.
