Down to 30

Out of 4.7 Million U.S. servicemen who served in World War I, there are only 30 left alive, including this gentleman who is 103 years old. The Hatcher household includes everyone in the armed services, past and present, in our daily prayers and hope those currently in bad places come home safely. Our family lost my Great Uncle Earnest Walker in 1944 at Normandy. My Granny Hatcher was never able to talk about it without crying until the day she died, but she was never bitter about losing her baby brother. On this Memorial Day, I hope all those who have lost loved ones in wars present and past can find peace.
