One Hundred Years Ago Today, the War to End All Wars came to an end. One of the millions of casualties was Charles Francis Brown, a young marine from 

St. Paul Minnesota who paid the ultimate price overseas fighting for his country. You will not be forgotten.

Great find. I hope this Marine is smiling, knowing we're all  taking great interest in his service and sacrifice 100 years ago.

Today is November 11th so I thought that I would bring this back to the top for the 101st anniversary of the end of World War I.
