Hi Larry,

In his picture he seems like a serious young man, but then going off to a horrific war is serious stuff!?

I hope his wounds weren't to serious? (after his 1st wound, he did re-inlist) that speaks volumes about his bravery!

"The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract."
