Please accept my sincere condolences to the family. May the God of all comfort give you the comfort you need to endure this difficult time (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)
The station in Alaska carried out many roles which made the Korean War efforts successful in the war theater. Blessings and prayers to you all.
I am sorry for your loss. I am thankful to your husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle by his service to our nation in the Korean War. As a American History Teacher, I know about the great sacrifice he made. I was thankful he survived that war.
He made many contributions when he returned from the war. On behalf of his legacy, to his beloved family, I want just to say he will be greatly missed. He filled many roles I am sure in your lives. May God comfort you in the days ahead and years as you mourn his loss. God bless you all. May God use his great heritage and legacy to bless and crown all the efforts of his lineage until Jesus returns.
