Additional commentary.
1. Gone but not forgotten.
I was fortunate to personally know this hero and his family when I lived in DeBary. I was also honored to serve with him in combat in the 173rd Airborne Brigade. Although it has been more than a half century since he made the supreme sacrifice this memorial to him will help ensure he is never forgotten.
