GDC Veterans Display Remembers Memorial Day 2020

Recommended Posts

This weekend is Memorial Day. It is time to remember who has given their life for the United States. Today, at GOD DUTY COUNTRY Veterans Display we honor two Veterans: First Veteran is Virgil Vincent Parker, USMC, Marine Raiders, Sixth Marine Division. He was in the first wave in the Battle Of Okinawa, April 1, 1945. On April 3, he was Wounded In Action and received his first Purple Heart. Then on June 5, 1945 an explosion took his life. RIP. Second Veteran is John Barnard Goodman, 506 PIR, Service Company, 101st Airborne Division. He was in the second wave of men in the D-Day invasion on June 6, 1944. As he and his men battle their way thru Normandy, on June 28, 1945, an ammunition truck exploded and killed him instantly. RIP. Thank both of you for your service for the United States. SALUTE!
