Last September 11, a friend and I went for a walk and decided to try to locate his uncle's grave at Arlington. I snapped a bunch of photos (more after the jump) of graves that looked to me to contain interesting folk. After downloading them, I Googled to find out more about the men behind these memorials and what I found was fascinating.
I imagine flying a bombing mission through a tropical storm halfway around the world was difficult and, in George's case, deadly, but he did it. He and his family made the sacrifice and kept the world free.
So in addition to all of my friends and family who served, I'd also like to thank George, Charlotte and their daughter Elaine who paid the ultimate price for freedom.
