The Saga of Sgt Richard E. Owen

May 31st, 2010 Posted in The SandGram v1.0

This Memorial day, I wanted to take a moment to remember all those who have served and protected our great country for the last 235 plus years!  Below is a link to a neat story that my mom (who I am very proud of!) wrote about Sgt Owen whose plane went down on D-Day over France.  This project was started by Mark Seavey over at The Burn Pit and a great read on this special day.  Thanks to my Mom and Dad for all their effort in tweaking this PDF below and all the volunteers who helped put this together so that you could enjoy it. Also thanks to Marcus, my website Guru for helping me out!!!

    I’m so glad you put this up there. She did a really great job, and I know she had to put aside several other things she was working on to devote the time.

    Thank you Taco’s mom! This is a story that moved many of us.

    I appreciate your comments, everyone! Kanani was one of the posters on the Burn Pit blog so she was right in there with us! It was an honor to work with such a great group of folks who simply didn’t want to see this soldier’s Purple Heart citation throw out. We all wanted it to go to the family!
