      For us to remember the men and women who have given so much so that we can have the freedom and lifestyle that we enjoy today, is a great responsibility we should not take lightly.
 
      Many historians concentrate on the famous and the infamous, and tend to overlook the people who gave their all to create and perpetuate this country.
 
      Many genealogists try to connect to some ancestor who is well know in history, even if they stretch the truth a little.
 
      The data contained on these pages of this website are intended to pay homage to those who sacrificed much, and maybe even gave their life.
