Memorial Day - 2014

These are some of the brave men who have served our country in the various branches of the military in different eras. I am grateful for the freedoms I enjoy in this great United States. I appreciate the service and sacrifices made by these, and all of those men and women, who served to help maintain those freedoms. Those pictured above are:
  • Terry Aitchison (Viet Nam)
  • Larry Aitchison (Viet Nam) 
  • Howard Epps (WWII)
  • Silas Bemiss (Civil War) (we believe he is the soldier on the left)
  • Al Avery
  • Bill Aitchison (Viet Nam, Gulf)
  • Pete Aitchison (Viet Nam)
  • Eugene Aitchison (WWII)
  • Keenan Aitchison (current)
  • Bill Goetz (WWII)
  • R. S. Osborn (Civil War)
  • Al Bemiss (WWII)
  • Fred Avery 
  • James Edwin Bemiss (WWII)

As I do not have photos of all of our family members who served in the military, I have listed below some of the others. I've probably missed some, but they are just as appreciated as those pictured and named. I didn't go back beyond the Civil War, but we owe much gratitude to a number of individuals who gave much, if not everything, during the Revolution and the War of 1812.
  • Michael Aitchision (current)
  • Carl Avery (WWII)
  • John Dahl (WWII)
  • Todd Groth (Gulf)
  • Frank Hoyle (Korean)
  • Jack Hoyle (WWII)
  • Eugene Marguerat (Civil War)
  • John Topping (Civil War)
  • Harold Wahlfors (WWII)
To those who are currently serving, thank you for your service!
