<![CDATA[MEMORIAL DAY - merge of 3 topics]]> Memorial Day we are reminded of the service, dedication and sacrifice of those who have served America and our Allies in the defense of Freedom all over the world.  Some paid the ultimate price anddid not return.  Others suffered severe wounds, both physical and mental, from the horrors of war and many still carry those wounds today.  To their families we are indeed grateful for their support of their service member as they endured the long periods of absence and worry and sometimes grief......

When you are celebrating summer with cookouts, sales at the mall, etc. please remember the original and real pupose of observing Memorial Day.  If you can....there are many veterans graves to be flagged in cemeteries around the world.  Whatever you do, please pause for a moment to say......Thank You to our service men and women!

We honor our Tigers...those still living (Frank Losonsky & Dr. Carl K. Brown) and those who have "headed West" by warmly saying....WELL DONE and thanks, Boys, we'll never forget you!!

We want you to know of the arrival of the remains of PW Atkinson on Monday, April 3rd at Dulles International Airport in DC, for dignified transfer to the funeral home prior to his service and burial in Martinsburg, WV.

He was in the care of Delta Airlines on the two flights from Honolulu, HI to Atlanta, GA and then to Dulles.

The photo provided by the Atkinson Family shows the U.S. Army Honors Team assembled to render honors to PWA and then transfer his remains to the hearse for the trip to WV.  An Army officer escorted PW all the way from Honolulu to the funeral home in WV.  The Courtesy Casualty Assistance Officer will take over duties of helping the Atkinson family with all of the preparations for the upcoming service and funeral.

The motorcycle bearing the American flag is that of Atkinson family member and Patriot Guard rider, Dennis Dupuis.

Well done all.....

U.S. Army......we thank you!!
