I don't know him, so I can't 'remember' him. But I hope you never do forget him, and that his story never dies.

My father's uncle jumped on D-Day into France, and lived to tell it - and is still alive. The odds against that are enormous. To his credit, he wrote several books to keep the knowledge of what happened preserved forever.

My 92 year old vet father is still with us too. He served in the South Pacific and helped John Wayne win the war.

My thanks to Gunners Mate, 1st Class/my Great-Uncle Robert French Abbott who passed away yesterday. He enlisted in the US Navy during WWII in Feb. 1942, attended subchasers and gunnery schools, served on a subchaser in Atlantic-Pacific-Aleutians & Mid-Pacific and took part in the Kwajalein invasion. On a personal note, the gentle Abbott family Patriarch will be sorely missed by all his immediate and extended family members. RIP Great-Uncle Robert!

Remembering my two uncles, one lost onboard the USS Wahoo in the La Perouse Straight WWII, and the other KIA Korea.

A third died a few years ago. Flew B-17's with the 100th bomb group ETO.
