By Mike Watson
With Memorial Day upon us and in conjuction with Jim's history of theDay, let me take this opportunity to submit another photo. A "modern"one. Our father, Carl Watson, son of Milton and Mollie Reeder Watson,along with all three of his brothers, Cameron, Hugh, and William,fought in World War II. All four came home.
This photo of Dad (which accompanies this article) was taken in 1943 or 1944 in the South Pacific, we never knew exactly where.
I always keep up with additions to the Veterans List on CM and havecontributed additions from time to time.
Photographs of the men and women who have served the United Stateswould be a nice addition to the collection. This Memorial Day would bea fine time to begin a collection, so I submit this single photo, andhave others that I will be happy to send.
I encourage others to do likewise. - Mike Watson
