On this Veterans Day 2013

“On this Veterans Day 2013 and beyond, let us remember the service of our veterans, and let us renew our national promise to fulfill our sacred obligations to our veterans and their families who have sacrificed so much so that we can live free.” – Dan Lipinski

Sergeant John W. Taylor, served with the 169 2nd Engineer Battalion, Masiwa, Japan from 1945-1947

Special THANKS to my dad’s sister for sending me a few military photos she had of my dad in her collection which allowed me to create this great military collage of him for Veterans Day 2013! 

Family and friends, be sure to check out my discoveries about the military life of my father over the past couple of years by reading some of the related blog post below:

Military Monday: Maybe a Forgotten War, but not a Forgotten Military Life
Military Monday: Servicemen’s Dependents Allowance Act of 1942
Military Monday: Father’s Army Buddies

If you have Sergeant John W Taylor showing up in your family research, let me hear from you because . . .I’m Claiming Kin!
