Comments:I remember George very well and often wonder if it was "Accidental Self-Destruction." Because of some of the things we were talking about just before he went out on Guard Duty that evening>

Comments:George was my cousin. I was only 7 years old when he died. Thank you so very much for this page. I'm so happy to know that George has not been forgotten. I wish his father, my great uncle, could have seen this page...I think he would have appreciated it.

Comments:I am touched that after all these years (39,now), George is still remembered. Thank you both for posting comments. As for me, I still miss him and think of him often. He was a wonderful brother. George, the world is a better place for you having been here. I will love you always.

My last contact with his son was in 1989.Because he is gone, we have missed years of this side of my family.Thank you for this site and for remembering my uncle that Inever got the chance to meet. Thank you for not forgetting him. I sincerely hope that others remember more of our fallen servicepersons and keep them alive in our hearts and minds.

Comments:I was very young when uncle George died, I remember it well as we rarely had contact with the family and have lost touch since. Thanks for remembering our lost and fallen.

Comments:I am looking for more information from this side of my family. My father was born 1 month after George died and we have not had contact with that side of the family since. Any contact would be great.
