I am reposting this about my family member who gave all....
On this Memorial Day weekend.....I want to recognize my grandmothers brother who gave his life for our country in World War I.
|James Harvey Patterson|
my aunt Sue remembers her mom saying....... Harve left in tears saying "I will never be back" as he walked away on that old country dirt road (not on a volunteer basis like we have now).
He was killed on October 4, 1918 just weeks before the war ended and was buried in Flanders Field. He did not make it back to American soil.....of course that always bothered my grandmother.
I am thankful to all who made that supreme sacrifice on this Memorial Day weekend!
