Memorial Day Stories 2019

If you please, my father (Merrill T. See) served in the US Air Force from 1946-49.  Born 2/1/28 and passed 1/14/11.  Photo attached if needed.

Also James Hekman was a friend.  He served in the Army, a tanker in Vietnam, 1969-1971 (roughly).  Born 1951 (?) and he passed away in November of 2014.  He is on the right in the photo (without the cigarette).

Thank you so much.

I have a name to add to the KCDP parade vehicle.
2nd Lt. Galen Warren O’Brien, KIA in North Africa on May 24, 1943 while serving as a fighter pilot in the Army Air Corp.Kalamazoo Central H.S., captain of the golf team, buried in Riverside Cemetery. 
(He was my father. I was a baby when he was killed so have no memory of him. Many people have told me he was very intelligent and a really good golfer. Also a proud Democrat from a family of Democrats.)

Judy O’Brien (another proud Democrat)

If we could add this name to the list of those lost in combat I would greatly appreciate it.   Captain Freeman was a Marine that I served with in Okinawa.  He was killed in combat in 2009.   

Captain Matthew Freeman, USMC

Thank you for honoring his service.  
Very respectfully,

My father was Jim Alles & his brother was Oliver Alles. Both were stationed in the South Pacific corridor during WW2.  Oliver, my uncle, died during this time.  As I understand it, he was responsible for the movement on island of New Caledonia to allow the service people to vote during major elections!  My father & his 4 brothers were all in the service during the War!  All were big Democrats.  All were in the US Army.
