My father, a classic good citizen, who emigrated from Canada, was proud to be an American. He instilled civic and charitable responsibility in his children. He also taught us to treat each customer with respect, count back change and to be good to your word. My father's memories of WWII included empathy for the prisoners of war that were taken by his unit and the forlorn mothers who followed the allied forces begging for food for their children. He had the heart to understand that the average German citizen suffered deeply from the depression and then the ravages of war.

decorated veteran who flew 57 combat missions during
his service in the Air Force. In 1946 he married the late

and community. Bert was a founding member of Congregation
Shir Hadash, and proud member of the Masons

GREENSBORO — Melvin C. "SCOTT" Scott died at Beacon Place, HPCG, in Greensboro on May 12, 2012. Born on July 17, 1924 in Hillsborough, NC.
"Scott" was a veteran of WWII. With the 24 Infantry Division, he served in active combat resulting in the liberation of several islands in the Pacific theater. Later, with the US Army Military Police in Tokyo, he came to have a high regard for the Japanese people, whom he said "were themselves the victims of cruel and ruthless leaders." "Scott" refused to accept all the medals he was due, saying only, "the true heroes were those who did not return."

God bless you dad and all the others who served with you in defense of America.

I would like to dedicate this poem I wrote in memory of everyone who had fought in World War Two. I care for several men who had fought in that war. One of the men I look after recently lost a longtime buddy of his. I was inspired to write this after he had shared that (bittersweet) news with me.

Another Chapters Finally Ending

He sits in his recliner
Feet planted on the floor
Hands tremble ‘neath the newspaper
As he scans the page once more

Can't believe what he'd been reading
But there it was in black and white
Another chapter's finally ending
In the twilight of his life

Seems a dear old friend had passed away
He'd known the man for years
And as he conjures up fond memories
His eyes fill up with tears

He neatly folds the paper up
And sets it on his lap
As more memories start surfacing
He lets them take him back

Back to a time when they were kids
Chicago 1932
Sons of Irish emigrants
Grew up on Western Avenue

Though money was tight and times were tough
They always seemed to find a way
To scrounge up a couple of dimes, enough
For a Saturday matinee

Oh how they loved to watch Farewell to Arms
With Cary Grant and Helen Hayes
And how they loved to talk about that film
When reminiscing ‘bout the good old days

They couldn't wait to join the service
Wear a uniform and carry a gun
Couldn't wait to fall in love with a nurse
Like Lieutenant Frederic Henry had done

It wasn't long after graduation
That World War Two was in full swing
They volunteered for the Navy
And did a stint in the Philippines

Saw some action in the South Pacific
Hard to believe they'd both survived
The war was finally over
It was May of 1945

After being discharged from the service
They took advantage of the G. I. Bill
The Veterans Administration
Helped find them a job at U.S. Steel

They joined some clubs, met their brides
Had children and over the years
They still managed to keep in touch
Through phone calls and cold beers

It'd been a while since they had talked
Was told then he wasn't doing well
And the latest word that he had heard
Was that only God could tell

He leans back in his recliner
Feet raised up off the floor
As he unfolds the newspaper
He scans the page once more

Guess it's true what he'd been reading
‘Cause there it was in black and white
Another chapters finally ending
In the twilight of his life

"And he will certainly render judgment among the nations and set matters straight respecting many peoples. And they will have to beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning shears. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, neither will they learn war anymore." What beautiful words this are. It will be nice when they come true in the near future. Than means no one will have to die ever again.

On Dec. 23, 2009, a man died in Waco, Texas. He was a native of Opelika, AL. Born in 1939, he served from 1956 - 1992. His name and rank, Col. Robert L. Howard. I never knew the man, but he was Special Forces, MACV-SOG and I read that he was the most highly decorated man. I remember my cousin, Mike Spann, every day, and every year November is a hard month, a proud one but hard. He died in Afghanistan the 25th of 2001 after 9/11. Mike was 32 and with the CIA after having served in the Marine Corps as a Captain. Col. Howard interested me, our Military history interests me and is something of which I am so very proud. So this Christmas in particular, I want to remember this man I never knew, this Col. Howard, so highly decorated. We should all always honor our Military and they need to know in life how very important they are to our country, our families, and to families who don't even know that particular soldier. For they are all Brothers, in Arms, and in our hearts. God Bless, and warmest Holiday wishes for all who have served, who are serving, and those who have gone before us and gave all that they had. Thank you, more than anyone could say in words. God bless and be with the families who grieve. For a time, the grief clouds the pride we share in our Brothers in Arms. Only they know truly what they give. We can only say "thank you." Daddy, I miss you so much. I will see you again, but I remain a little girl who just misses her Daddy. Thank you for your service, Daddy, in WWII where you turned 19 years old on Anzio Beach behind a machine gun. I love you, I love you. In special honor of John Cline Weeks from the little girl you called "the apple of my eye."

The greatest generation.....My father was a part of that generation. More specifically he was a part of a group of the most brave men in the World. He was a 25 year active duty Navy Veteran. Was at Pearl the morning it was bombed and on the USS Yorktown when it was sinking and on many other aircraft carriers in the Pacific. At one point he was presumed dead or captured by the enemy. But was found alive 5 days later in a raft with a few other men. He was always my hero as my DAD, but he was a hero to this country and to the defense of our great Nation. He loved his "NAVY".
He was John F. Marian, from Birmingham Alabama. Dates of active duty 1935 to 1960.

This remembrance is for my Dad, Norman E. Spooner who served in the Army during WW II, and died April 6, 2011. I was about 6 months old when he left, and I was over 3 years old when he saw me again. I don't remember when he left, but I remember so well when my Dad, along with other military men got off the train at the St. Paul, Minnesota depot. People were crying for joy to once again have their loved ones home. I remember he gave me a whole box of Dentyne gum, I could hardly believe it!
Thanks for doing your part Dad, for your willingness to leave a young wife, and infant to serve your country, I know it must have been extremely difficult. Now rest in peace.

I remember standing next to Pop, my brother Miles and Paul while holding tight to my mother's hand. The Tamaqua,PA, Train Station stood crowded with a frenzy of people. The summer day in 1945 found us waiting for a returning warrior. My oldest brother survived three years as Tail-Gunner on B17s over Germany. As the train huffed and puffed steam from its engine, we watched the young men in brown military uniforms disembark. Without warning, Mom ran forward to hug her son while the rest of us clustered around him. My brother Walter helped bring peace to Europe and happiness to the family that loved him. Later, he contributed to the prosperity of our country and volunteered his time to help those less fortunate. Walter also married, had a family and grandchild. He left us this week, but in my mind, I will always remember him as the tall, proud warrior, come home from the war.

Dad, you never talked much about your time in the service, but the last time you did really stuck with me. Thank you, and your brothers, who fought so bravely in Africa and Normandy to defeat Nazism and Fascism in WWII. Please watch over and help protect our current service men and women whenever they are in danger.

To my uncle Buddy, whom I never had the pleasure to meet. You were killed in Italy at the age of 19. You have your sisters with you now. I found a birthday card you gave my mom on her 18th birthday. It wished her a long and happy life. She made it to 86, but without her beloved little brother Buddy. I know some of your army pals made sure you were honored on the wall in Washington. You will never be forgotten.

Much love forever,
