‘On behalf of a grateful nation…’

| 1 Comment

A poignant photo from yesterday’s LA Times…and a reminder of the obligation we have as a nation of grateful citizens.

Clara Gantt, the 94-year-old widow of Army Sergeant 1st Class Joseph Gantt, weeps as his casket arrived at LAX early Friday morning. After a tour of duty during World War II, Gantt was captured in the Korean War and was missing for more than 63 years. His remains were only recently identified, providing closure for his family.
