World War 11 Research

At this volatile time in our history, we should all be looking back to honor our fathers and grandfathers and their service to this Great Country. What better way to do this than to reconstruct their military service to preserve it for future generations.  Richard was extremely helpful in reconstructing my dad's WWII service. Please contact him for great service.
