Massachusetts Hometown Heroes

My father's brother, Arthur Melanson, served in the Navy during the Second World War. He earned the Navy's Distinguished Service Cross in the process. Arthur was killed when his plane went down over the Pacific during a training exercise. His body was never recovered.

Like so many others, Arthur gave up his very life for a country he loved and ideals shared by generations of men and women. Ideals such as duty, honor and country. We forget the sacrifices of these brave men and women at our own peril.

The link above takes you to a listing of Massachusetts Hometown Heroes.
