I am grateful for those who have served their country to protect me...
...but, I am sad for those who lost their lives doing so.
Genealogy research has always been a big part of my life. In those searches for family
members, I found many who served their country and came home
...and sadly, many who didn't.
Beverly Seaman and others of his crew were killed in a bombing mission during
World War II. He served with the 742nd Bomber Squadron, 455th Bomb Group.
Beverly was my 1st cousin once removed. I never met him...he died long before I was born.
This one came home and I am so grateful for that!
