We must remember more often than one day/year. My Great Uncle, Ray Dewey Ellison did not lose his life in WW1, but he did lose his lower legs. It never stopped him from enjoying has passion for fishing. He was able to drive his car equipped with hand controls, with his little boat strapped on the top. His rattan wheelchair, prosthetic legs & little crutches are displayed at the Courthouse Museum. The prosthetic's rubbed his legs till they bled so he walked on his knees, covered with oval rubber pads, for the remainder of his life. I remember him well, I am proud to be your niece Uncle Ray & bear your name. Myrna Rae

Thank you for this video. It was so meaningful to see photos of the hero’s as their names and ranks were read. Made my appreciation grow so much and made them personal to our generation.

That was a lot of work someone had to do but I am very grateful it was done. Thank you for helping me to honour them this way. I was quite young when World War II broke out but remember how handsome my brother looked in his uniform. He was one who returned safely and assigned to serve in the occupation troops in Germany.
