I cannot tell you how heart warming this entire thing has been, some of you know that my great uncles remains were identified by DNA from the USS Oklahoma over 60 years ago. Two men are responsible for this, and an entire town stopped and pitched in to show respect. I have hundreds of pics, and we're making a scrap book for the family to keep. Local and national media were there, so I will link to stories and coverage of that later, the ship also had some pretty fascinating information. The turn out was nothing short of over whelming, we had planned for and paid for 200 people to eat afterwards, instead, we had over 300. More than 500 people showed up at the funeral, some were WWII vets from around the world. Also a group of POW bikers called the Thundering Herd showed up, all at once, with flags, they were security to keep the media, and any protestors out. We had no idea they were coming, I was manning the door at the pre get together at the American Legion when they showed up. We just about shit ourselves, there was just not much room for anyone else. Much more as the day goes on, I am going to pick out some good shots to share. Cliffs, we will never have another generation like this one, cherish the memory of one man who finally came home, and gave his life for our country. Pics loading.. and will continue until I have been able to share this with those interested. This sign greeted us as we came into town, all of the flags were out, and at half mast. Other flags lined the streets of this small farm town, America at her finest. This is where we started and intended to help set things up for after the burial, the church and town already had most of it done. The front of the room, where we put up his pictures and awards for everyone to see. The ship picture is signed by surviving members of Pearl Harbor, 1-200 of them die a month now.
