Post member Charley Chester was at The Tahoma Cemetery and placed several wreaths on veterans plot including a couple of ours:
The plot RobertW Gilliam. I placed a wreath signed by our post and me. This veteran I recognized because he was
A true friend of Princess Hall & Calvin Horman who tried to recruit him to join our VFW Post. Princess felt a need to recognize him. So I accomplished that deed for her and our post honoring her request even though he wasn’t a post member. I even mailed his wife a card with the picture I took.
Russel William Plot. I also placed a wreath. Each one of these plot I prayed a short prayer and gave a snappy salute.
Chester James/Maxine plot. He & she is my daughter-in law grandparents and we’re dear friends of the family for years. Chet got the Bronze Star in Itally and wounded also. A true American Hero and dear friend for so many reasons. So our post also recognized him for that even though he wasn’t a post member.
There is my story behind these photographs.
