For those of you who didn't read my "Memorial Day roll call" post on Memorial Day, and for some reason it disappeared from my blog (What the heck, Blogger?), here it is again:
Remembering family members who served and are no longer with us:
Raymond Shay, U.S. Army and Iowa National Guard, World War I and Mexican Border Campaign, buried at Fort Logan National Cemetery with his wife, my grandmother --
Florence Green Shay, U.S. Army nurse, World War I
Thomas R. Shay, U.S. Army Signal Corps, World War II ETO
Daniel Shay, U.S. Air Force, Vietnam-era
Patrick Shay, U.S. Air Force
My mother, Anna Hett Shay, was trained as a U.S. Navy nurse but never saw active duty.
My father-in-law, Jack Schweiger, CWO4, U.S. Army, World War II, Korea and Vietnam, buried with his wife Ann in Arlington National Cemetery. They travelled the world and raised two kids in the process, Ellen Schweiger Berry, who married a 20-year Navy man, and Christine Schweiger Shay, who married me.
Thanks for your service. We miss you all.
