  • This salute goes out in memory of my grandfather, Watson B. Lee, who passed awy this year. He served in the Navy during World War II. Also his three fine sons: Steve, Gary, and Butch Lee also proudly served our country in Vietnam and the Gulf War. Our family is proud of the heritage of service to our great country that these men have started for us!
    May God richly bless them! -- Cappie W.

  • I would like to say "Thank You" to all of those who have unselfishlyserved to protect our freedom. On this day, I hold the memory of mybrother especially close. My brother, Hoyt P., passed away on July 23at 25 years old. Even after discharge, he continued to be most proud ofbeing a Marine! He was definitely one of the few and one of the proud.
