BACK TO INDEX
Pearl Harbor survivor Houston James of Dallas is overcome with emotion as he embraces former Marine SSgt Mark Graunke, Jr. of Flower Mound, Texas during the Dallas Veterans Day Commemoration at Dallas City Hall. SSgt Graunke, Jr., who was a member of a Marine ordnance-disposal team, lost a hand, leg, and eye while defusing a bomb in Iraq in July of 2003.
Another of many brave solders we don't hear enough about:
PFC Marissa Strock, lost both legs serving in Iraq in 2005.
Please do what you can.. Donate to the Wounded Warrior Project www.woundedwarriorproject. or to Honor Flights for Veterans.
I have no words for this one, only prayers of thanks for these brave souls. May God bless them and their families.
