THE BLOOD OF HEROES NEVER DIES

        With another Memorial Day upon us, let us take a brief moment and salute those men from our county who have given their lives in the service of the United States of America.  

These are the men who have given the last true measure of devotion so that we may be free.

Take a few minutes and read the 199  names and say a prayer in their memory.  I pray that this list shall never be added to, except through the discovery of names from distant wars which are now only known to God.

Comments

I would like to add one more name to the list, even though hr died shortly after returning from Viet Nam with combat wounds allover his body,some still draining; The V.C.'s over ran his unit and killed over half the unit and sliced him over his nentire body.
He returned home to Dublin an broken man and did not live long after returning. His name was Sammy Lamb, I think
