I know I posted a few weeks ago about my grandfather passing, being a WWII Veteran. It has been a rough few weeks for my family, in particular for my wife. A few days after my grandfather passing, one of her uncles passed. I just found out he may be a 2 time Purple Heart recipient. A week later my wife had an Aunt that passed. I know this is going to sound crazy but, the next day after that funeral another Uncle had passed. Another Purple Heart recipient. I have been trying to find out info regarding his award. His son George Jr. told me he was in a convoy and thinks he was the only survivor when they hit a land mine. This alone kept him from talking about it I guess. Most of the younger part of his family didn't know about it. I am proud to tell you a friend of his in the VA hospital has arranged a 21 gun salute for him. Yes we have lost 4 of our relatives in as many weeks, and we are dealing with it the best we can. I wonder if any of you know how to find a list of recipients or links or anything that could help. His son would really appreciate it. This man was a great father and a gun lover. I know he was a gun lover because he and I haggled over a S&W Model 59 years ago, and I won.
