Penned by friend and neighbor Gregory Gebolys, who gave eight years of his time, energy, and heart for the construction and dedication of the Veteran’s Freedom Memorial in Lima, Ohio (shown in photo). Thank you, Greg, for this labor of love, and also for your U.S. Army service.
With gratitude, love, and respect to the men in my family who have served:
Grandpa (U.S. Navy)
Dad (U.S. Navy)
Son (U.S. Navy)
Uncles (U.S. Navy and U.S. Army)
Thanks also to Keith’s Dad, who served during wartime in Vietnam by building a lepresarium. He no less risked his life in service to our country than those in our armed forces.
