Memorial Day 2013

From 2012:

 Honoring my late ancestors who fought.  From Center top clockwise: My great-great-grandfather, John Stearns Percival, Jr. He fought for the Confederacy and died outside Little Rock, Arkansas, 1832-1863; Frank B. Percival, my father, US Navy World War II, 1925-2003; Charles Zimmeth, my maternal grandfather, World War I, 1888-1979; Group picture with John Stearns Percival, my grandfather picture middle row left, World War I, 1892-1965; Bernard P. Kruszka, my father-in-law, Army Air Corps, World War II, 1919-2011.

Also served in World War II were Angus Mack, my Aunt Margie's husband; John Zimmeth, my mother's brother; Ed Zalot and Arthur Kruszka my husband's uncles. Also, my uncle John Percival, who served in the Army during WWII.

Younger daughter's "boy" served in Afghanistan and Iraq. My cousins John & Evelene both served in the Air Force -which is how they met. My nephews Patrick and Steve also served, Patrick in the Navy and Steve in the Army.

Thanks to all who served.
