Today our family remembers....
Grandpa Merrill served in World War One in the Medical Corps.
Uncle Bill (Dad's oldest brother)
Uncle Bill served in World War Two, in the Air Corps
As a bombardier he flew missions over China
Uncle Pete (Dad's 2nd Brother)
Uncle Pete was a Marine in World War Two, serving in the South Pacific and China
Dad and Uncle Bob.
All five of the Merrill Brothers would eventually serve their country...Something that had been instilled in them since childhood.

I am honoured and humbled by my Merrill legacy.
Today I too add my gratitude for all those who serve and have served their countries...
We will remember.
