My father passed away on 22 Dec and I mentioned it here.
He was quietly very proud of his military service. Having caught the WW2 pacific mop up, then was 21000 yards away from the Yalu River in Korea before taking part in the longest retreat of the US army before retaking some of that ground. I’m pretty sure he never made it past Private Second Class and lost a stripe on multiple occasions. Nonetheless, he was a soldiers soldier on the battlefield, and mustered out with a good conduct status.
Our family has a remembrance (no formal service) coming up in a month, and would very much like an Army presence. This will be done in a private home and be a remembrance rather than a funeral. Websites I’ve looked at are for funerals arranged through a funeral home, or I don’t understand the process.
thanks in advance
