Remembering Back 1944
“As I walked thru the many white crosses with a dog tag attached I will always think of two of these crosses. Winston Pace-a close buddy I run around with. Gomer Scott an old class buddy from the Beaverdam School. These two crosses stood out above all the thousands I saw as I passed by. Both killed on D-Day in France, my age-a few years before the age of 20. There were many more in the following years but only these two still stay with me after all these years. To them on this day I say a prayer. Thanks Winston-Thanks Gomer, you paid a price for this freedom I enjoy.”
