Some of my ancestors I'm remembering this Memorial Day:
Martin Mueller, my 2Great Grandfather, born 1828 in Westphalia, Germany. Died March 1864 in the Western Theater of the Civil War. My Great Grandmother Fredericka was born a month later.
Irwin Frank Ignatius Schindler, my Great Uncle: US Marines, died in France 1 November 1918.
Otto S. LaGrange, my maternal Grandfather: WW I.
Irvin H. Schindler, my Dad: US Army Air Corps, WW II.
Kenneth Otto LaGrange, my Uncle: Merrill's Marauders, Burma (WW II)
I'm also thinking about all of the rapidly diminishing number of brothers from Vietnam, as well as the warriors standing tall around the world.
A salute for all of you.
